HC Deb 03 March 1908 vol 185 c521

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the fact that by far the larger number of cases, civil and magisterial, in India are disposed of by natives judges, he will advise the Government of India to take steps to make this known in order to the proper contradiction of statements made by ex-officials and others to the effect that the administration is harsh and that justice is not done between man and man in India.


The fact must, I think, be sufficiently well known, and in any case I should be disposed to doubt whether such action as my hon. friend suggests would prevent mis-statements of the kind he describes.


Has the right hon. Gentleman seen a statement made in a public speech by the hon. Member for East Nottingham to the effect of the last few words of the Question?
