§ SIR LEWIS PELLY (Hackney, N.)
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, If he will place upon the Table of the House any Resolutions of the Government of India, with connected Correspondence between the Government of India and the subordinate Local Governments and between the Government of India and the Secretary of State for India, on the question of the purchase of stores and articles for the use of Government in England and in India respectively?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
(who replied) said: If the hon. Member will move for the Resolution of the Government of India of the 10th of January, 1883, which contains the Rules now in force regarding the supply of articles of European manufacture re- 474 quired for the Public Services in India, the Secretary of State for India will be glad to let him have the Papers as an unopposed Return. As regards the Correspondence asked for, Viscount Cross does not think it necessary to give it, as it is long and somewhat controversial, and contains nothing which is not in the Resolution.
