§ Mr. GEORGE GOOCH
asked the Under-Secretary for India whether the Secretary of State had yet received official information as to whether the cases of the nine British subjects who were deported from Bengal last December without charge or trial have now been reconsidered by the Government of India; and, if so, with what result?
§ Mr. J. D. REES
asked the Under-Secretary for India whether the cases of the nine deported Bengalis came up this month for reconsideration by the Government of India, or were merely reported in the manner prescribed by the Regulation as a matter of administrative routine?
The MASTER of ELIBANK
The Regulation requires the officer, in whose custody a State prisoner is, to submit twice a year a report to the Government of India on the "conduct, health, and comfort" of such State prisoner, in order that the Government of India may determine whether the orders for his detention shall continue in force or be modified.
§ Mr. RAMSAY MACDONALD
Are we to understand that the Government of India is not reconsidering the policy that has been pursued?
