HC Deb 08 May 1913 vol 52 cc2226-7

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is prepared to grant the Return standing on the Order Paper for this day, which is a continuation, in slightly altered form, of similar Returns granted in former years?


The hon. Member may have forgotten that in May last year he asked if a similar Return could be prepared for 1911. In August he was advised that the Return had been obtained from India and would be laid if moved for. If he will move for the Return, I shall be happy to lay it. Its preparation entailed considerable work, and the Secretary of State is not disposed to call upon the Government of India for a further Return for 1912.
