asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can now give any information as to the results of the amended Leper Act passed by the Imperial Legislative Council in India; how far the Act has been put into force by the various Provincial Governments; how many lepers have now been segre- gated; and how far the remedial treatment of the disease gives promise of success?

The Government of India have not yet replied to the request for information on this subject. I have now telegraphed, asking when their reply may be expected.
