HC Deb 21 July 1879 vol 248 c844

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether the authorities in India have yet supplied the figured Statements which will enable Members to compare the figures in the latest Finance Accounts with those figures in the Accounts of prior years; whether the Debt Statements have yet been obtained from India; and, when will the Second Part of the Finance Accounts be delivered, and the distribution Statement of the Capital spent in different parts of India on productive Public Works in the two last years be ready?


The second part of the Finance Accounts will be delivered to Members in the course of a few days. The distributive Statement of Capital expended on Public Works has been received, and a copy shall be sent to the hon. and gallant Member. As regards all the other statements to which the hon. and gallant Member's Question refers, I am sorry to say that they have not yet been received from India. The recent changes in the forms of account have caused some delay; but I will do my best to obtain them quickly.
