HC Deb 22 February 1926 vol 192 cc10-1
28. Mr. SCURR

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the visit of His Majesty the King of the Belgians was made on the invitation of the Government of India; what was the cost of the provision of hospitality, and whether this cost is a charge on the Indian revenue?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. His Majesty's visit to India was purely private and unofficial. I understand that the total expenditure defrayed from Indian revenues was about £7,000.
