§ Mr. O'GRADY
asked whether any, and, if so, what representations have been made to the Government of India in the matter of shortening trials of those accused of political offences in India?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
One of the objects of the passing of the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1908, was to provide more expeditious machinery for the trial of political offences in India. The Secretary of State has no reason to suppose that trials under the new procedure are unduly prolonged.
