§ 60. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will at the earliest opportunity institute an inquiry 1940 as to the alleged serious irregularities in the adminstration of justice in Calcutta Police Court by the honourable S. K. Sinha, chief presidency magistrate, particularly in regard to the large percentage of appeals to the High Court where his decisions have been reversed?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Butler)
I have nothing to add to the answers given to the right hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood) and the hon. Member for East Dorset (Mr. Hall-Caine) on 24th July.
§ Mr. McENTEE
What is the actual percentage of cases heard by the chief magistrate which have been reversed on appeal?
§ Major JESSON
Is not this gentleman now in London and could he not be taken to the India Office and taught his duties?
