Oral Answers to Questions — Amritsar Disturbances. – in the House of Commons on 22nd December 1919.
asked the Secretary of State for India whether, pending the result of the Hunter Inquiry, Brigadier-General Dyer has been relieved of his command; and, further, whether the Secretary of State has yet received a cabled report of General Dyer's evidence given before the Commission?
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. I may say I am in communication with the Viceroy on the whole matter.
Obviously this is too important a question to be dealt with in supplementary questions, and, therefore, I give notice that I shall raise the subject on the Adjournment to-day.
