§ 11. Mr. NEWBOLD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India why the circulation in India of the "Workers' 8 Weekly" has been forbidden by the Indian Government; and whether any other Socialist papers legally published within the Empire are under a similar ban in India?
§ Earl WINTERTON
In prohibiting the entry into India of any publication, in the exercise of its powers under the Sea Customs Act, 1878, the Government of India does not state its reasons. But I am aware that the "Workers' Weekly" has contained writings of an Indian revolutionary which are seditious in India.
§ 12. Mr. NEWBOLD
asked the Under Secretary of State for India whether the Indian Government deems the propaganda of Socialism in India to be illegal; and, if so, under what Act, and what Clause thereof it is so held to be illegal, and if the Indian Government has declared to be so, or is treating as an illegal organisation, the workers' and peasants' party in India?
