HC Deb 30 April 1923 vol 163 c942

asked the Under-Secertary of State for India, whether the Government of India has decided that it is necessary to lay before both Houses of Parliament the Act of the Governor-General of India certifying the increase of the salt duty, refused by the legislative a sembly; and how soon the Act will be laid upon the Table?


No decision by the Government of India is involved. In pursuance of the Government of India Act my Noble Friend is taking steps to lay on the Table of both Houses the Indian Finance Act, 1923, which I would remind the hon. Member is already in operation in accordance with Section 67b Sub-section (2) Government of India Act. The Paper is expected to be ready for distribution shortly.
