§ Mr. SWAN
asked the Secretary of State for India whether, after the Royal Proclamation, the district magistrate of Jullunder, in the Punjab, has refused to renew licences under the Arms Act to several applicants on the ground that they had attended the Indian National Congress, which he said had passed seditious resolutions; whether he refused 245W to forward to the Government of the Punjab a representation on the subject made by the Jullunder District Congress Committee, on the ground that that body was irresponsible and self-constituted; whether a series of questions on this subject, of which notices were given by several members of the Indian Legislative Council, were disallowed by His Excellency the President during the last session; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
I have no information beyond some complaints made in the Press. I will make inquiries.
