§ 28. Mr. GINNELL
asked what action, if any, was taken by Sir Robert Chalmers against Mr. Mitchell, superintendent of the Panawatte estate, Ceylon, on whose orders, without charge or trial, certain Punjabi soldiers executed by shooting Wattegedera Gamaralalage Serahami on the 13th June, 1915, after the disturbances, in which he was not involved, had ceased; and whether Sir Robert Chalmers has left Mr. Mitchell still in power in Ceylon or has brought him to Ireland?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I have no reason to suppose that there is any foundation for the allegation in the question. The last part of the question does not seem to call for serious reply.
