§ Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether, considering the complaints from India regarding the treatment meted out to applicants for passages, he will state what steps have been taken by the Government of India to insure the proper allocation of passages to sick people invalided home under medical certificates?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to a somewhat similar question which he asked on the 19th May. While the Government of India exercised control over passages, sick persons invalided home under medical certificate were given priority over all other cases and I have no doubt that the principle has been followed in allocating the passages in the extra ships which have been provided this season.
