§ 3. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to a letter despatched by Ibn Saud, Sultan of Nejd, on the 7th March last to the President of the Central Khilafat Committee, in which serious statements are made regarding the oppression exercised in the past upon pilgrims from India and other places proceeding to the Hejaz, and promising security and peace for the future; whether the Government of India has received any similar communication from Ibn Saud; and, if so, whether it was accompanied by any guarantees?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I have seen a newspaper report of the letter from the Sutlan of Nejd to the Central Khilafat Committee, but am not aware that the Government of India have received any direct communication from Ibn Saud.
