§ *MR. REES (Montgomery Boroughs)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that Mahomedan British-Indian subjects returning from the Haj complain that they do not receive adequate protection and assistance from the British Vice-Consul at Jeddah; and, if the Answer be in the affirmative, whether he will make inquiries in view to the comfort and convenience of British-Indian subjects in the Hedjaz.
§ THE UNDER - SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. BUCHANAN,) Perthshire, E.
No authenticated report of complaints on the subject has reached the Secretary of State. Inquiry is being made by the Foreign Office.
