HC Deb 01 May 1893 vol 11 c1627
MR. BUCHANAN (Aberdeenshire, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the Despatch from the Governor General of India of the 2nd November, 1892, and of the opinions expressed in this House on the 17th February, 1891, he will introduce legislation to abolish the separate Military Presidential commands in Madras and Bombay?


My hon. Friend has probably not observed that ill accordance with the intimation I gave on the 10th March as to the intention of Her Majesty's Government, a Bill for this purpose has been introduced in the House of Lords by the Secretary of State for India.
