§ SIR SEYMOUR KING
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, whether he will consent to grant as unopposed Returns the Papers mentioned in this day's Notices of Motion standing under the head of " East India (Establishment Charges and Percentages in the Military Works and Public Works Departments)?"
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
As regards the Report of the Committee on the Military Works and Public Works Departments, no expression of opinion on it has been received from the Government of India, nor has it been considered by the Secretary of State in Council. Until this has been done, I cannot undertake to say whether it can be laid on the Table.
