HC Deb 13 June 1892 vol 5 c901

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether India is to be represented at the Chicago Exhibition; and, if so, whether the Government of India proposes to give a grant in aid?


After very careful consideration the Government of India have come to the conclusion, in which they have the support of all the Indian Chambers of Commerce, that it is not necessary that India should be officially represented at Chicago, either directly or through the British Commission; or that any grant in aid should be made. The Government is, however, supporting the Calcutta Tea Association in the establishment of an Indian section at the Exhibition.
