§ Mr. MACKARNESS
asked the Under-Secretary for India whether he has any official information showing that the judges of the chief court at Lahore, whose judgment in the Gulab Bano case was dissented from by the executive, have announced their intention of commenting publicly upon the resolution of the executive; and whether he can say whether the judges have made those comments, and what is their nature?
The MASTER Of ELIBANK
The Secretary of State has no official information on the subject, but he has seen in the newspapers a report stating that the chief court have taken notice of the resolution published by the Lieutenant-Governor, and have expressed the intention of considering the matter further. The Secretary of State has no knowledge as yet of the result of such consideration.
