§ 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.
