HC Deb 09 October 1924 vol 177 cc725-6
Mr. MILNE by Private Notice

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether serious riots between Hindus and Mahommedans have broken out at Allahabad; how many people have been killed or injured; whether British and Indian troops were employed to restore order, and whether any other outbreaks in other parts of the country have occurred?


I have not yet received any official report regarding the riots at Allahabad which to-day's Press messages from India, describe. I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a note on inter-communal disturbances which have occurred recently at a few places in India.


Cannot the hon. Gentleman undertake to get the information? Surely it is very important information for this House to have. It seems to me rather strange that he should have none to give beyond his very sketchy reply.


I suggest that the hon. Member should wait for the Report which I am circulating.

Following is the Note promised:
