HC Deb 23 June 1930 vol 240 cc776-7
21. Mr. MARLEY

asked the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to a letter dated 23rd May, 1930, issued by the Brigadier-General Staff, Southern Command, India, endorsing a leading article appearing in the "Poona Star," dated 22nd May, 1930, criticising the Bombay Government; and if so, whether he proposes to take any action, in view of the irregularity of this conduct, which is contrary to the King's Regulations?


I fear I know nothing of this matter; but, if my hon. Friend will let me have particulars, I will examine the case.


Has it not been published all over the country? Has the right hon. Gentleman seen the article in the "Poona Star," and the letter, signed by Major Turner, regarding this matter?


I shall be grateful if my hon. Friend will supply me with those very particulars.

Forward to
