HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 cc1475-6W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that an American citizen, Mr. Frank Dutton Jackson, has been served with a notice to remove himself forthwith from British India by sea from the port of Calcutta; whether representations with regard to the matter have been received from the American Consul- General in Calcutta; and what, is the reason for the action taken by the Government?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, to the second, so far as I am aware, in the negative. The order is due to the opinion of the Bengal Government that this individual's conduct is such as to render his continued presence in India undesirable.
