HC Deb 19 February 1907 vol 169 c704

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India proposes that any further portion of the gold standard reserve should be held in silver; and, if so, whether the opinion of the Chambers of Commerce and of other mercantile bodies will be invited before definite and final action in this behalf is taken.


The silver portion of the gold reserve fund is limited to £4,000,000 (600 lakhs of rupees). There is no intention of extending this limit.
