§ MR. JUSTIN M'CARTHY
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether, seeing that the Report of the Government of India on the connection of Madras officials with the promotion of Gold Mining Companies, promised by the Secretary of State for India early in April last, has not yet been received, He will urge upon the Indian Government the importance of having the Report completed at the earliest date possible, or at least of giving the India Office some information as to the time when its completion may be expected?
§ MR. J. K. CROSS
, in reply, said, that he had told the hon. Member on Monday that a despatch had been addressed to the Government of India on the 19th April last, and there had been no delay in the matter, which was sure to have the attention of the Viceroy; but he was afraid that the illness from paralysis of Sir James Gordon, who visited Mysore, would prevent the Report coming home as soon as it might otherwise have been expected.
§ MR. O'DONNELL
asked, if there was information that the incriminated officials were doing all in their power to delay the preparation of the Report, so that it might not reach home until after the expiration of Parliament?
