§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, in view of the fact that the Government of India have recently sanctioned a special irrigation grant of 25 lakhs (£166,666 13s. 4d.) to local governments for minor works, such as village wells, tanks, and channels, will ho state the local governments by whom this money will be received and the approximate amount of grant to each.
§ LORD G. HAMILTON
Of the special grant of 25 lakhs, 7 lakhs have been, already allotted to various provinces. I have not received exact details of the allotments, but the greater part of this sum has been allocated to Bombay. The allotment of the remaining 18 lakhs has not yet, so far as I am aware, been made.
