HC Deb 12 May 1924 vol 173 cc884-5
9. Mr. SCURR

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether an official inquiry will be held into the firing of six volleys on a crowd outside a cotton mill at Cawnpore, on 4th April, causing three deaths and many injuries?


An official inquiry has been made by the district magistrate, and a summary of the report made by him appeared in the London Press on the 25th April. We have not yet received a copy of the report officially, but I will let my hon. Friend know when it arrives.
