§ SIR WILLIAM WEDDERBURN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state at what date the explanatory memorandum of the Indian Financial Statement will be issued to Members; and will the total figures be expressed in tens of rupees, so as to allow of comparison with previous statements.
§ LORD G. HAMILTON
The explanatory memorandum is in the press, and will be issued to members as early as possible. The total figures will be ex-pressed in pounds, so as to allow of a comparison of the figures in the Estimates with those in the accounts. The figures in the return of not income and expenditure from 1888–9 to the present time, which has just been presented, have been re-cast, and shown in pounds, in order to facilitate a comparison of the accounts during that period.
