§ 56. Mr. SCURR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the decision of the Government of India to spend Rs.4½ lakhs on the reclamation of the swamps in the Andaman Islands was taken after consultation with the Committee of Imperial Defence or the Admiralty; whether such decision was approved by the legislative assembly; and whether the amount is a final charge on the Indian revenues?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, because no question of defence arises. The answer to the second and third parts of the question is in the affirmative.
