§ 33. Sir FREDRIC WISE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the cost to the Exchequer of the Council of the Secretary of State for India in 1913–14 and in 1925–26?
§ Earl WINTERTON
No charge fell on the Exchequer in respect of the Council of India in 1913–1914, the entire cost of the Secretary of State's establishment being then borne by Indian revenues. Since the passing of the Government of India Act a contribution has been made by Imperial revenues to the cost of the India Office. The approximate amount included, in respect of the Council of India, in the contribution for 1925–1926, was £18,400.
