THE MARQUESS OF LOTHIAN
asked His Majesty's Government whether their attention has been drawn to a letter from Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru published in the 354WA Manchester Guardian on December 10th contradicting a statement made in the Bengal Government's Administrative Report for 1933–1934 to the effect that during that year he had been engaged in seditious agitation under the cloak of untouchability activities and with money collected for work for the untouchables, and to ask whether this allegation can be substantiated and if not whether it cannot be withdrawn?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (THE MARQUESS OF ZETLAND)
