§ 1. Mr. DAY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India how many disturbances have taken place in British India during the three months ended to the last convenient date, giving figures of any fatal casualties; and the numbers of military police or infantry posted in these areas and the numbers employed as the result of these disturbances?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Butler)
During the three months ended 31st December, 1935, there were ten disturbances in British 976 India, mostly of a minor character, involving eight fatal casualties altogether. I regret that I have no particulars available to enable me to answer fully the second part of the question, but troops were employed on one occasion only.
