§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE (for the Prime Minister)
I have consulted my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for India in reference to my hon. Friend's suggestion. We do not think that any public purpose would be served by attempting to take the ordinary discussion on the East India Revenue Accounts under the present extraordinary circumstances.
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
I can only give the hon. Gentleman what the Prime Minister says on the subject. I suggest that he should speak to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for India on the subject.
§ Sir J. D. REES
Without questioning the decision, may I ask if there is not a statutory obligation to bring the Accounts before the Houses of Parliament?
