§ GENERAL SHUTE
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, When the complete accounts of the whole proceeds of all the moveable property of ex-chiefs of Kirwee, including the funds retained by the Indian Government, will be presented to the House, in accordance with the Parliamentary Orders of 1873 and 1874; and, if he will be good enough to state the cause of the delay?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
The Return is complete. All that passed into the hands of Government, as indicated in the Orders of the Houses of Parliament, was contained in the Return of 1876. I presume, however, that the Question of my hon. and gallant Friend refers specially to certain promissory notes. He will find a list of those notes at page 15 of a Return as to Kirwee prize-money, presented to this House in 1870. The matter was fully discussed in the House of Lords in 1877, and my noble Friend, Lord Salisbury, explained that a decision had been come to on the subject in 1869, after the most lengthened and careful consideration of successive Governments.
