HC Deb 10 November 1911 vol 30 cc2042-3W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India has to ask the consent of his Department to the purchase of motor cars in connection with the Durbar; whether this consent was given without any recommendation as to purchasing cars of British manufacture unless foreign cars were found better in quality or price; and whether in future his Department will make this recommendation with regard to purchases?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; to the second, also in the affirmative; with regard to the third, the Secretary of State is not prepared to give any such general pledge as is suggested.
