HC Deb 07 October 1909 vol 11 cc2181-2

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether, in the event of further deportations being at any time resorted to, the Indian Government would allow all or some of the opportunities of proving innocence which the new Egyptian law afforded suspected persons before they were placed under police supervision?

Captain NORTON (Lord of the Treasury)

The Secretary of State can give no pledge to alter or amend the Regulation of 1818, if necessity for resort to it should unfortunately arise.
