HC Deb 29 April 1929 vol 227 cc1274-5
2. Mr. KELLY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the number of persons arrested under the Public Safety Ordinance, 1929, promulgated by the Viceroy under the special powers vested in him by Section 72 of the Government of India Act and designed to check the dissemination in British India from other countries of certain forms of propaganda, and the names of the persons so arrested?

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

The Ordinance gives no power of arrest except in case of disobedience to an Order issued under it. So far as I am aware, no such Orders have yet been issued.
