HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 cc1144-5W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is now in a position to say how many Sinhalese were in prison untried on 11th August, 1915, when Mr. Harry Creasy, European member of the Legislative Council, urged the immediate enactment of the measure to bring to trial or release imprisoned citizens; how many of those have been tried in the special tribunal then created; why all have not been brought before that tribunal; and whether any of those untried prisoners are still in prison untried?


I have not yet received this information.
