§ LORD FREDERICK CAVENDISH
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether any decision has been yet arrived at with respect to the principles under which the claims of the War Office upon the India Office on account of the Home Charges incurred for the Regular Forces serving in India during the years 1870–71, 1871–2, and 1872–3 are to be decided; and, whether any decision has been arrived at with respect to those charges in future years?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, it was true there had been a difficulty in arriving at the settlement of the claims referred to by the noble Lord, and the matter had been referred to him. He was very anxious to bring about a settlement of the question, which certainly ought not to be left long outstanding.
