§ BARON HENRY DE WORMS (for Mr. ONSLOW)
asked the Secretary of State for India, Whether it is true that a meeting is to take place between the Maharajahs Scindia and Holkar; and, if so, what steps Her Majesty's Government have taken to express their approval, through the Viceroy of India, of such an auspicious event?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
Sir, I have no information with regard 451 to this event, except what has appeared in the newspapers. I have no doubt that the Government of India will take any steps which they think necessary in the matter. We have not thought it necessary to issue any directions to them on the subject.
