HC Deb 02 March 1921 vol 138 c1848W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether the revenues of Aden are still accounted for in the Indian Budget; whether Post Office receipts at Aden on the sale of stamps to civilians are credited to the Indian Expeditionary Force; and whether it is now proposed to separate Aden financially and administratively from India and incorporate it in British Somaliland, or whether it will be made a separate Crown Colony?


The answer to the first part of the question is, pending further arrangements, in the affirmative: as regards the second part, I regret that I have no information; as regards the last part, subject to the assent of the Government of India, which is still awaited, Aden will be transferred to the Colonial Office, to which Department questions as to its future status should be addressed.

Forward to
