§ MR. M. M. BHOWNAGGREE (Bethnal Green, N. E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, whether he has any information regarding the projected exhibition to be held at Lisbon next year to celebrate the fourth centenary of Vasco de Gama's discovery of the route to India; and, whether the Portuguese Government has invited England to take an important part in that exhibition; if so, whether it is intended to comply with such request?
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
Beyond what I have seen in the newspapers I have no information regarding the projected exhibition. No invitation for India to take part in the exhibition has reached me.
