§ 18. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether any estimate has been made of the prospective deficit in the budget of the new province of Orissa after its separation from Bihar; and, if so, what is the amount of such deficit and what subvention is likely to be required for the new province after its establishment?
§ Sir S. HOARE
The deficit is at present estimated at a little over£200,000 a year. I cannot yet give any figure for the subvention from the Centre.
