§ MR. HART-DAVIES (Hackney, N.)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India has protested against the increase of £300,000 a year to the Home charges of the Indian Army; and whether, if so, the despatch embodying their objections will be laid upon the Table of the House.
§ MR. BUCHANAN
The Answer to the first Question is in the affirmative. As I stated on a former occasion, the Secretary of State has decided not to lay the Report of the Romer Committee before the House, and the Government of India's despatch could not be presented separately.
