HC Deb 11 December 1925 vol 189 c848W
Colonel DAY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he will inform the House of the total cost to the revenues of India of the Khyber Railway and the annual expenditure estimated as necessary for its maintenance; and whether these items come under the heading of military expenditure?


The latest estimate of the capital cost of the Khyber Railway is about £1,897,000. I have no estimate of the cost of maintenance, but the annual working expenses, including maintenance, are expected to be about £33,150. The expenditure is not included in the military budget.
