§ MR. VANSITTART
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, Whether he has any objection to lay upon the table of the House a copy of Sir Charles Trevelyan's Financial Statement previous to making his own on Monday next?
§ SIR CHARLES WOOD
, in reply, said, he had had hopes of being able to make the statement upon Indian finances on Monday but he was quite unable to do so, and he must therefore postpone it till Thursday. With regard to Sir Charles Trevelyan's statement, he thought it would not be 732 proper to lay that document on the table of the House. It was not an official document, and if the hon. Gentleman would refer to some papers moved for by the hon. Member for London he would find a Minute which contained Sir Charles Trevelyan's views on the subject of the income tax.
