HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 c233W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can give the House any information regarding the alleged discovery in Madras of a plot to obtain German aid for a rising in India?


A recent telegram in the public Press gave some particulars regarding a trial which was being held in a Madras district in which the accused was charged with complicity in a plot to obtain German aid. No official information regarding it has as yet been received from India.
