HC Deb 20 February 1879 vol 243 c1508

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Why the Return relating to Ecclesiastical Salaries in India, ordered by this House so long ago as the 5th July 1877, has not yet been presented?


Sir, I am sorry to say that the Return has not yet been received; but it has been a very difficult one to prepare. After I observed the hon. Member's Question, in December last, I caused a letter to be written to India on the subject; but we have not at present received any reply.
