HC Deb 19 March 1907 vol 171 c654
MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the Report of the Indian Excise Committee, and the consequent action to be taken by the Government of India thereon, the Bengal Excise Bill, which was referred to a Select Committee of the Bengal Legislative Council in 1905, will be reintroduced.


I have ascertained that the Government of India have still to consider the Bill in connection with the Excise Committee's Report, and that it will not be proceeded with in the current session.
