HC Deb 11 February 1908 vol 183 cc1526-7

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that Members of Parliament and correspondents of journals in England have been shadowed by detective police while travelling in India; and whether he will consider the advisability of putting a stop to this practice.


If the Gentlemen concerned will address the local governments, if they have been put to any sort of inconvenience by the alleged practice of which my hon. friend complains, I can promise that they will receive every consideration.


Is it not a matter of common knowledge that travellers in India are apt to fall into bad hands?
