§ MR. BIRLEY
asked the Secretary of State for India, Whether he will inform the House on what day he will be prepared to submit to the House the Indian Financial Statement?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON,
in reply, said, that in the present state of the Business of the House he was unable to name a day on which he could make the Financial Statement. He believed it was the intention of his right hon. Friend at the head of the Government, in the course of next week, to make a proposal which would place at the disposal of the Government a larger portion of the time of Parliament; and if that proposal was adopted, and the House in the meantime made progress with the Compensation for Disturbance (Ireland) Bill, he hoped to be able to find time for making the Financial Statement before the end of the month.
