HC Deb 28 February 1917 vol 90 cc2047-8W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can give the House, orally or otherwise, any information regarding the action the Government of India is taking as regards a post-war trade policy, particularly as regards the participation of Germans in financial, commercial, and missionary enterprises; and whether the adoption of the restrictions applied by other Governments in Asia in respect of aliens and of alien trade is contemplated?


For some time past I have had these matters under my close attention in consultation with the Government of India, who are now obtaining the views of local Governments and unofficial bodies. I am not at present in a position to say more on the subject.
