§ Lieut.-Colone Muirhead
Detailed figures could only be obtained by inquiry from the Provincial Governments, and my Noble Friend is not aware of any present circumstance that would justify him in addressing to those Governments a general inquiry of this kind on a matter of law and order for which they are responsible under the Government of India Act. In this connection I would refer the hon. Member to the Prime Minister's reply to the right hon. Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill) on 17th June, 1937.
