said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, Why the third instalment of the Delhi Prize Money has not been paid according to the recommendation of the Prize Committee, and when it will be paid?


, in reply, said, the Commissioners had considered the advisability of making a third distribution, but they found that a number of claims had not yet been preferred, and of course, if they made the third distribution, they would not have had the means of meeting those prior claims. The payment had been suspended only until these outstanding claims had been disposed of.
