§ MR. BUCHANAN (Aberdeenshire, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India what provision is being made to recoup the India Exchequer for the initial expenditure on transport and similar purposes connected with the despatch of the Indian contingent to China.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE TOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
An approximate estimate of the initial cost of the force that is being sent from India to China has been obtained from the Government of India, and forwarded to the War Office. When a Vote has been passed by the House, application for the amount will be made to the War Office.
