HC Deb 07 December 1936 vol 318 c1614
3. Mr. DAY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India for the latest information he has as to the conditions in India?


I presume that the hon. Member would wish me to make a further statement about the situation on the North-West Frontier. The tribes concerned in the attack on the troops on 25th-27th November have been informed that Government forces wilt march into the Khaisora valley, remaining there as long as is considered necessary. A road or roads will be constructed from Mirali into and within the Khaisora valley and fines in rifles and other penalties will be exacted from the guilty sections. Work on the road has already begun, under the protection of a column of troops.


Are the Royal Air Force co-operating?


Yes, Sir.
