HC Deb 02 January 1913 vol 46 c537W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary for India whether the Secretary of State has received the expected report and records of the Midnapore case; and, if so, what action he proposes to take in the matter?


The Secretary of State has not received a final report on the case. Mr. Weston and the two police officers who were defendants in the civil suit have in consequence of the judgment on appeal been granted retrospectively such promotion, acting or substantive, as would have accrued to them but for the original judgment of the High Court.
