7. Mr. McENTEE

asked the Secretary of State for India if he will give information concerning the present political situation in India?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Sir Samuel Hoare)

I am circulating a statement covering the events of the last week.

Following is the statement: This week's reports on the whole confirm last week's appreciation, and are particularly satisfactory as regards the North-West Frontier Province, the United Provinces, the Punjab and Madras. The danger of sporadic cases of violence as a result of Congress demonstrations is illustrated by an incident in the Monghyr District of Bihar and Orissa, where a very determined attack, made on the police station, was beaten back with difficulty after resort to firing. Instances of this kind are, however, of casual occurrence. The situation in Kashmir and Jammu Continues to improve, but accounts of recent events have intensified communal feeling outside particularly in the Punjab.
