§ 5. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Secretary of State for India the number of détenus consigned to the Andamans during the last 12 months; whether it is intended to bring all or any of them to trial in the near future; and whether it is proposed that this convict settlement is to be used for incarcerating political offenders and persons under suspicion of political offences?
§ Mr. GRENFELL
Are there any persons in the Andamans who have been charged but not brought to trial?
§ Mr. BUTLER
It has been the habit to send terrorist convicts to the Andamans and not détenus or those awaiting trial.
