HC Deb 07 July 1926 vol 197 cc2070-1

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that two Indians, Usmani and Dange, sentenced to four years' rigorous imprisonment at Cawnpore in 1924, are suffering gravely in health as a result of the conditions to which they have been subjected; and whether the Government of India propose to take any steps to improve these conditions?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)

I have no knowledge that the health of these prisoners is affected; but I will see that the inquiry reaches the Government of India.


May I ask whether the result of that inquiry will be sent to me, or whether I shall have to put down another question?


That rests with the hon. Lady. Perhaps she will put down another question.
