HL Deb 08 March 1881 vol 259 c539

inquired, When any further Correspondence on the Military Estimates of India will be presented in accordance with the assurance contained in Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech at the opening of Parliament?


In reply to my noble Friend, I beg to inform him that "further Correspondence on the Military Estimates of India" was presented to both Houses in January last. Some further Correspondence is now in course of preparation, and will be distributed in a few days. I may state, however, that, as far as we know up to the present date, there is no material alteration with regard to the Estimates as compared with those already presented.

House adjourned at a quarter before Seven o'clock, to Thursday next, half past Ten o'clock.
