§ MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether any, and what, arrangement has been made by the Indian Government to send Nawab Zaighumud-Dowlah to this country; at whose cost, for what term, in what capacity, and at what salary; whether the same person was formerly appointed Rural Sub-Registrar in Bengal, and at what salary; whether he afterwards ceased to hold such appointment; and, whether the Government can state the reasons for such cessation?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JOHN GORST) (Chatham)
The Secretary of State is not aware that Nawab Zaighum-ud-Dowlah is being sent to England at all in any capacity. The Bengal Civil Lists for January and April, 1888, show that this gentleman was on the 1st of those months a Special Sub-Registrar in the Durbhanga District; he was a probationer for six months; his salary was 75 rupees a month, and he enjoyed certain fees under the Registration Law. Beyond these entries in the Bengal Civil List, the Secretary of State knows nothing about this gentleman.
