HC Deb 29 June 1909 vol 7 c231
The HON. MEMBER for SOUTH HACKNEY (Mr. Bottomley)

had given notice of the following question: To ask the Secretary of State for War whether a quantity of smuggled hashish or bhang was recently discovered by the Egyptian Customs officials on board the Indian transport "Braemar Castle"; whether a fine of £2,000 was inflicted; who paid the fine; what steps have been taken to discover the parties actually responsible; and what punishment, if any, has been inflicted upon them?


I understand that it is the wish of the right hon. Gentleman that this question should stand over pending the result of an inquiry now proceeding?
