asked the Secretary of State for India whether the operations in Burma against the rebels are under the control of the military or civil authority?
§ Mr. BENN
The statement which I circulated on the 2nd June shows that military and police forces are operating in conjunction, but under their own officers. The appointment of Mr. Booth Gravely as Special Commissioner in the five districts affected by the rebellion has secured unity of command over the civil forces, but is also de signed to secure unity of action between the civil and military forces.
§ Rear-Admiral BEAMISH
Is the hunting down of these gangs of rebels still continuing, and are the Government satisfied with the rate of extermination of these armed and semi-armed bodies of persons?
