§ Mr. O'GRADY
asked whether the hon. Member's attention had been called to the announcement of the local government of Dacca that it is to subsidise a vernacular weekly newspaper; and whether, in view of the fact that such intention is spreading among local and presidential governments in India, the Secretary of State intends to take any, and, if so, what steps in this matter?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The Secretary of State has no information on the subject, but has inquired. He can make no statement until he is in possession of all the facts.
