HC Deb 07 June 1888 vol 326 cc1386-7
MR. STAVELEY HILL (Staffordshire, Kingswinford)

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether Mr. Barrington Browne's Report on the Upper Burmah Mines has been received; and, whether the Government has come to a decision upon the agreement for working the mines; and, if so, whether the decision will be given at an early date, so as to avoid the loss of the season for getting the machinery to the mines?


Mr. Barrington Browne made his first Report to the Government of India before he left India. He is now making a more elaborate Report, which will be completed in a few days. Till the further report has been received by the Government of India, no final decision can be arrived at; but no avoidable delay will take place.
