HL Deb 29 June 1896 vol 42 c249

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, whether he would lay on the Table of the House a Return of opinions and reasons entered in the Minutes of the Proceedings of the Secretary of State in Council with reference to the Dispatch of April 2, 1896, to the Government of India, leaving to their operation Acts 2 and 3 of 1896, on the subject of the Indian Tariff Act and the cotton duties; a similar Return with reference to the expenses of troops to be dispatched to Africa in aid of the Egyptian troops, and the Dispatches from the Government of India on the liability of India to defray this cost.


said that there would be no objection to laying the first two Papers to which the Question of the noble Lord referred upon the Table if he would move for them. The third Paper would be presented to both Houses in due course by command, and therefore there was no necessity for the noble Lord to move for its production.

LORD REAY moved that the first two Papers should be laid upon the Table.

Motion agreed to.

House adjourned at Seven o'clock, till To-morrow, a quarter past Ten o'clock.
