HC Deb 07 September 1909 vol 10 cc1280-1W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he has any information as to the cancellation of a meeting called by the sheriff of Bombay at the request of its citizens for the purpose of protesting against the treatment of the Indians in the Transvaal?


The Secretary of State has no official information on the subject. He has seen a report in the Press to the effect stated; the reason given an that report for the decision of the Government of Bombay was that they thought that the passing of the South Africa Union Bill made such a meeting under the auspices of a Government official undesirable.
