§ 14. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that 1988 prisoners in Berhampore Gaol are on hunger-strike as a protest against the Government of India's refusal of their request for articles necessary for daily worship; and whether he will see that the policy of non-interference with religious customs is extended to prisons?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I have not received any Report on this matter, but would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for North Lambeth on the 18th June.
