HC Deb 23 May 1878 vol 240 c496

who had given Notice that he would ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, How many men of all ranks of the Indian Army it is proposed to include in the Estimate which he has announced his intention to ask the House to vote? said: The Constitutional course taken by Her Majesty's Government in including in the Supplementary Estimate—["Order!"] [Mr. HUSSEY VIVIAN: I am in Order.] The course of the Government in including in that Estimate the number of Indian troops brought to this country has entirely removed the necessity I felt of putting this Question. I therefore beg to withdraw it.
