§ Mr. R. GWYNNE
asked the Secretary of State for India at what price per ounce of silver the Indian rupee is meltable; and what the Government of India propose to do to protect the currency if silver rises to the melting price of the rupee?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
The melting point of the rupee is about 39d.ex Indian import duty and 43d. cum duty. I will answer the second part of the question if my hon. Friend will repeat it when, if ever, the state of things therein presupposed arises.
