§ SIR MANCHERJEE BHOWNAGGREE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in consideration of the contribution amounting to upwards of £150,000 made by the Government, princes, and people of India to the Imperial Institute, and of the annual payment now made by India, he will 268 move the Board of Trade to arrange for the reception and training of three or four graduates of Indian Universities in the laboratories of the Institute in such chemical research work as is now performed there for Indian purposes.
§ MR. BRODRICK
I am not aware that graduates of Indian Universities desire to be trained in the laboratories, and I have no reason to believe that the laboratories are adopted for instructional purposes. I consequently do not feel it necessary at present to move in the matter.
§ MR BRODRICK
I have no objection to communicating with the authorities, but I should first require to be assured that the graduates do desire this training,
