HC Deb 03 June 1897 vol 50 c173
MR. SAMUEL SMITH (Flintshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the usual Memorandum explanatory of the Indian Financial Statement, which has already been received from Calcutta, can he presented to Parliament immediately after the Recess, so that Members may be better prepared to deal with that statement when brought before tire House for its adoption?


The explanatory Memorandum is in the hands of the printers; but some of the information which I wish to include in it was only received by the last mail from India, and I fear that it cannot be distributed to Members for some time yet.
