HC Deb 15 April 1875 vol 223 c972

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India, Whether there is any portion of the Banda and Kirwee prize money in the hands of the Government; and, if so, will he inform the House when it will be paid to those entitled to it?


A complete account of the prize has not yet been received from India; but it is believed that about £30,000 of that booty is still in the possession of the Government. It is probable that this will not be more than sufficient to meet the outstanding claims arising on the distributions already authorized. It is therefore not likely that any further distribution will be made to those whose authorized claims have been already satisfied.
