HC Deb 08 July 1875 vol 225 c1143

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it be his intention to introduce, within the present month, or when, the Indian Budget?


in reply, said, it was not in his power to fix a day for the Indian Budget. The Government were very anxious it should be introduced at an earlier day than usual this year, and with that object it had been published at an earlier day in Calcutta. Owing to the slow progress of Public Business, the Government had not yet been able to realize their intention; but in the course of a few days he hoped to be able to give a more satisfactory answer to the Question.
