HC Deb 19 April 1923 vol 162 c2302W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether there is to be a cut of 50 lakhs in the expenditure of the Post Office in India; and whether he can give some indication as to the direction in which the cuts will be made?


The Government of India are budgeting for a reduction in the expenditure of their Post and Telegraph Department of about 130 lakhs, which approximates closely to that recommended by the Inchcape Committee. As regards the direction in which the reduction will be made, I have no information beyond that contained in the Committee's Report, to which I would refer the hon. Member.
