§ *MR. REES
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.
§ MR. MORLEY
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.
