HC Deb 11 January 1916 vol 77 c1444
44. Major WHELER

asked the Secretary of State for India when it is proposed to publish the dispatches dealing with the fighting on the north-west frontier of India at the beginning of September, 1915, where British forces were engaged?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Chamberlain)

It is not the practice of the Government of India to publish dispatches about minor operations against tribal gatherings on the north-west frontier, which are not of the nature of a military expedition.
