§ MR. SCHWANN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India when he will lay upon the Table of the House the Report on the Assam Tea Plantations, now for several years delayed in its presentation to Parliament.
§ LORD G. HAMILTON
I have not yet received the views of the Government of India on the subject of the Report to which the hon. Member's question refers, although in February last they hoped to be able to lay them before me at an early date. The matter with which the Report is concerned is a difficult and intricate one, but I will draw the Viceroy's attention to the desirability of expediting the submission of their opinions upon it.
