HC Deb 12 March 1883 vol 277 c210

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, If his attention has been called to the article in last week's financial journal "Money," which states that a number of gold mining enterprises that have resulted disastrously for the public were promoted by Indian officials; and, what steps he intends to take in the matter, and when the Papers on the subject will be circulated among Members?


I have seen the article referred to in the Question; but we have no information beyond that contained in the Papers presented to Parliament on the Motion of the hon. Member for Dungarvan (Mr. O'Donnell), which will be in the hands of hon. Members in a few days. I am not aware that it is the intention of the Government to take any further steps in the matter.
