HC Deb 07 March 1927 vol 203 c813
6. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India in how many cases during the administration of Lord Reading and his successor have processions of Hindus past Mohammedan mosques led to riots; whether the question of provocative action in these cases has been fully investigated; and what is the policy determined on to prevent the recurrence of these events?


I have no statistics to answer the first part of the question. I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that this particular cause of dispute has been investigated from every possible point of view. In answer to the third part of the question, I have nothing to add to the reply given to the hon. Member for Central Southwark (Colonel Day) on 11th November last.
