§ Mr. J. HUDSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to the Report of the Chief Presidency Magistrate at Madras in connection with the shooting incident during the recent strike against the Burma Oil Company; and whether Messrs. Scott and Farmer, officials of the Burma Oil Company, have been sent for trial (under Section 324 I.P.C.) on a charge of causing hurt with a dangerous weapon, as recommended by the Chief Presidency Magistrate in his Report?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I have not yet seen the report referred to, but I have ascertained that Messrs. Scott and Farmer have been charged and are now under trial.
