HC Deb 11 December 1900 vol 88 c496

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if any arrangements have yet been made to carry out the transfer of the sum of £250,000 from the British to the Indian Treasury, as recommended by the Royal Commission on Indian Expenditure, and foreshadowed by himself on 26th July last in his speech introducing the Indian Budget to the House.


It has been arranged that the Indian revenues shall be relieved of payments amounting to £257,000 a year with effect from the 1st of April next. The correspondence on the subject has been laid before Parliament, and is now being printed.
