HC Deb 23 September 1943 vol 392 cc454-5W
Mr. Dabbie

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that a candidate in a recent by-election for the Indian Legislative Assembly was prohibited by the officials of the Madras Government from holding meetings and otherwise campaigning, while his opponents were given such facilities; what was the result of that election; and whether he will ensure that the Governor's administration concerned will refrain from such practice in the future?

Mr. Amery

I presume the election referred to by the hon. Member is that held for the Madras City constituency early in June in which the Congress Party candidate was elected. With regard to the first part of the Question I have no information.

Forward to
