§ 51. Colonel DAY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the cost of building and fitting complete the new India House in London will be borne by the Indian Government?
§ Colonel DAY
Will the Indian Government also bear the whole of any supplementary expenditure without any assistance from the home Government?
§ 59. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether it is proposed that the whole of the £300,000 estimated as the cost of building and fitting the new India House in London will be borne on Indian revenues; and whether, in view of the fact that the commission for the building has been placed in the hands of a British architect, it is intended that an opportunity shall be given to Indian artists to take part in the interior decoration?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. My Noble Friend is informed that the scheme for the internal decoration of the building has not yet been settled.
