HC Deb 01 April 1935 vol 300 c5
7. Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that a deputation from the depressed classes recently waited on the Home Member of the Government of Madras to ask for protection for themselves, when they acquired land for cultivation, against destruction of standing crops and other methods of intimidation practised by caste people; and what reply was given to them by the Home Member?


I have no information beyond what has appeared in the Press.

Duchess of ATHOLL

Will the hon. Gentleman inform himself upon the matter?


I am ready to make inquiries if the Noble Lady desires.
