§ 20. Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he has received any complaints as to the treatment of the peasants and labourers in the sub-state of Sikar; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I have seen an article in the Press regarding the alleged illtreatment of the inhabitants of the Sikar estate. In the absence of any authentic statement of the facts, my Noble Friend does not propose to move in the matter.
