§ 35. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether, considering that although the local governments may have powers to deal with wilful and malicious misrepresentations of the actions and intentions of the Government and its servants and with attacks upon them, this is a duty that should primarily be undertaken by the Government of India itself, he will therefore call the attention of the Government of India to their recent. 1664 Resolution promising the fullest assurance of countenance and support to all servants of the Government of India charged with the onerous duty of suppressing excesses and direct them to take the necessary measures to put a stop to the virulence of criticism and misrepresentation that has lately been indulged in in certain portions of the Indian Press?
§ Colonel YATE
