§ Sir CHARLES HUNTER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he can give the approximate cost of the new Government buildings at Delhi; and if the land on which they are situated became the property of the Indian Government before or after the announcement of the change of the capital?
§ Mr. C. H. ROBERTS
The project estimates of the engineers and architects are at present being examined by the Government of India. According to these estimates the outlay on Government buildings of all kinds will amount to £2,800,000. The land has been purchased by Government tinder a notification which issued immediately after the announcement of the change of capital, and under terms which base the price on the value prevailing at that date.
