HC Deb 19 March 1928 vol 215 c37W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is now in a position to state the estimated cost of the Committee recently appointed to inquire into matters concerning the relationship between the Indian States and the paramount Power and related questions; and, in view of the fact that the whole cost of this inquiry is to fall on Indian revenues, if a vote in respect of the total expense to be incurred has yet been introduced in the Indian Legislative Assembly?


I am not yet in a position to state the estimated cost, and I am unable to say, having regard to the terms of Section 67A of the Government of India Act, whether the expenditure will be submitted to the vote of the Legislative Assembly.
