Up to 31st March, 1927, roughly, I lakh of rupees will have been spent on the Sind excavations; the answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the third part that a requisition has been received by the Government of India from the British Museum, but that no scheme of distribution has yet been considered.
