HC Deb 10 June 1864 vol 175 c1544

said, he understood the right hon. Gentleman opposite, the Secretary of State for India, last evening to state, when the question relative to Lady Elgin's pension was before the House, that pensions granted out of the Indian revenue are not submitted to Parliament. He would now beg to ask if there is not a provision in the Act of 1858 under which all pensions and charges on the Indian revenue are to be laid before Parliament within fourteen days.


No doubt the pension would be laid before Parliament. What he stated was, that it was not necessary that it should be submitted for the Vote of Parliament.
