MR. BRADLAITGH (Northampton)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether ho can state to the House the nature of, or whether he will lay Papers upon the Table showing 1124 the various proposals made during the past 12 months, to or by the Secretary of State in Council, and to or by the Government of India, and to either, by any other parsons in relation to particular railways in India, or in relation to any general scheme of Indian Railway finance, together with any correspondence thereon?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Sir J. GORST,) Chatham
My noble Friend the Secretary of State is of opinion that it is not expedient to give the Papers asked for in the question, nor would it be convenient or practicable to do so. He wishes me to suggest to the hon. Gentleman that he will have an opportunity of discussing the matter on the statement in connection with the Indian Budget.
§ MR. BRADLAUGH
I beg to give notice to the right hon. Gentleman that if he does not lay these Papers on the Table before the discussion of the Indian Budget takes place I shall feel it my duty to submit to the House a summary of the proposals made to the Government, with the criticisms of the Government of India upon them.
