§ SIR WILLIAM WEDDERBURN
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, looking to the Viceroy's statement that the famine in India exceeds in intensity any previously recorded visitation, he will arrange for the Indian Budget to be brought forward at an early date.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
The Indian Budget, I suppose, will be taken at the ordinary time.
§ MR. MACLEAN
Is there any special reason why the Indian Budget should be delayed until the last days of the session?
