HC Deb 28 June 1937 vol 325 c1654W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he will make a statement respecting the present position on the North-West Frontier?

Lord Stanley

A White Paper was presented last week covering the disturbances up to 14th June, and there is little that I can add to the information given in it. I am glad, however, to be able to say that most of the Tori Khel tribe are returning to their normal activities and that the release of all kidnapped Hindus, except one, has now been secured. Operations are proceeding with the object of breaking up the scattered gangs of hostile tribesmen which remain.
