§ Mr. McGOVERN
asked the Secretary of State for India if he is aware that a recent number of the journal, "United India," London, published by Mr. G. S. Dara, has been intercepted by the authorities in the Punjab from delivery at certain addresses because it contained a New Year message to India from certain Members of Parliament, the Congress League, and the Gandhi Society, London; and on what grounds objection was taken to this message?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I have no information as to the grounds on which any recent copy of this periodical may have been intercepted. The matter is one within the discretion of the authorities in India.
