HC Deb 10 March 1927 vol 203 cc1364-5

asked the Secretary of State for War why the cost of the despatch of Indian troops to China is not included in the Supplementary Estimate submitted to Parliament, in view of the statement made by the Government of India in the Indian. Legislative Assembly on 16th February that no expenditure had been incurred from the Indian revenue in respect of these troops?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Captain Douglas King)

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement I made when introducing the Supplementary Estimate last Tuesday. The cost of the Indian troops is included in that Estimate.
