HC Deb 05 December 1922 vol 159 cc1471-2
1. Mr. AMMON

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether a memorial to his address from an officer of the posts and telegraphs of India, which originated in an appeal to the Viceroy in October, 1921, has yet been disposed of; whether the papers on this case were seen by the Viceroy or any other officers of the Government of India other than those against whose orders the appeal was made; and will he undertake to have the procedure in India examined with a view to prevent the vitiation of the right of appeal by delay or any other cause and to ensure for the services in that country a prompt and fair hearing of appeals at all stages?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)

If the hon. Member will let me know the particular memorial which he has in mind, I will have the facts examined.
