HC Deb 08 October 1924 vol 177 cc521-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the return of casualties in Waziristan during July last giving the list of officers, non-commissioned officers and men killed in action and died of wounds, etc.; and whether the Government of India have now reconsidered the question of withdrawing the field-service concessions from the troops in Waziristan under which they have hitherto been serving?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, an inquiry has been addressed to the Government of India and my Noble Friend will consider the matter on receipt of their reply.
