§ MR. MACLEAN
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if Her Majesty's Government propose to give effect this session to the recommendation of the Royal Commission on the Financial Relations of England and India, that the Treasury should make a grant of £50,000 a year to the India Office.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
In answer to the question, I have to say that it is impossible for the Government to arrive in the course of the present session at any detailed conclusion of policy in the direction recommended, by the Royal Commission. The Royal Commissioners took five years to come to a conclusion, and we have only had that conclusion in our hands a very few days.
