Oral Answers to Questions — India. – in the House of Commons on 21st February 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Sir J. D. REES:


asked the Secretary of State for India what measures are being taken to preserve law and order in the affected portions of the Malabar district in view of the fact that martial law ceases automatically upon the 26th instant; and whether he has any statement to make as to the manner in which martial law has been enforced by the Government of Madras?

The latest reports I have received indicate that when the operation of martial law ceases there should be no difficulty in preserving order by the enforcement of the ordinary law. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the particulars of operations and statistics of judicial action which have already been published.
