HC Deb 25 March 1919 vol 114 cc239-40W

asked the Secretary of State for India if he can furnish the House with the latest reliable information from Afghanistan?


No fresh developments have been reported since my last statement was made. According to the latest accounts, Amanulla Khan continues to control the situation, and no disturbances appear to have occurred. European employés of the late Amir, who arrived at Peshawar from Jalalabad on the 13th March, reported all quiet at Kabul up to the 8th March and at Kandahar up to the 9th. Nasrulla and Inayatulla are believed to be under surveillance. The Government of India have received a letter from Amanulla couched in friendly terms, announcing his accession and expressing his desire for co-operation with the British Government.
