§ MR. NAOROJI (Finsbury, Central)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether the Secretary of State for India, before sanctioning any alteration in the present system of currency in India, will submit the question for the consideration of this House?
MR. GEORGE RUSSELL
In answer to a question front the hon. Member for Hull on the 9th instant, I stated that the evidence could not be laid before Parliament consistently with the public interests until the decision arrived at on the Report had been announced; and it follows that the Secretary of State cannot undertake to pursue the course suggested by my hon. Friend.
