HC Deb 22 July 1913 vol 55 c1867

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for India a question of which I have given him private notice, namely, whether the India Office received by the last Indian mail, which arrived on Saturday, the Papers in relation to the Sitapur murder trial which Sir John Hewitt said was necessary in order to enable him to give his explanation. If the Papers had been received, will they be laid together with Sir John Hewitt's ex-plantation?


Yes, Sir, the Papers were received from India by the last mail. Sir John Hewitt's explanation has also been received. Everbody concerned is most anxious that they should be published as soon as possible, and the Papers are now being dealt with with a view to being printed.
