§ 9. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if the Government of India has proof of the existence of political societies in India which seek to advance their objects by criminal methods; and, if so, will he give the names of the principal of these societies?
§ Earl WINTERTON
As regards the first part of the question, I would refer to what is said as to the existence of terrorist organisations in the Papers presented to Parliament, Command No. 6 2288 of 1924 and No. 34 of 1925, presented under the Government of India Act, also to Command Paper 2309 of 1924 as to the Cawnpore Conspiracy Case. As to the second part, I am not prepared to specify by name those organisations which are considered to be the principal offenders.
