§ SIR WILLIAM WEDDERBURN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, whether his attention has been drawn to a statement in the Times of India of 18th April last, that a military force has proceeded from Wana to Haidari, Tach, and Sarwakai, and that military posts are being constructed at these places; and, whether these places are beyond the external frontiers of British India; and, if so, whether under 421 Section 55 of the Government of India Act of 1858, the consent of both Houses of Parliament will be obtained for this expenditure?
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
The places mentioned in the hon. Member's Question are not beyond the external frontiers of Her Majesty's Indian possessions; the section which he cites, therefore, does not apply to the case.
