HC Deb 19 April 1932 vol 264 c1397
39. Mr. MOLSON

asked the Secretary of State for India what economies have been effected by the Government of India in the archæological department; and whether he is satisfied that no irreparable harm will be done to that department by those economies?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Sir Samuel Hoare)

I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of a Memorandum circulated to the Indian Legislative Assembly last November on this subject. I have no reason to think that the Government of India, under whose control the Department is, are unmindful of the desirability of avoiding economies which may permanently impair its usefulness.
