§ 3. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will approach the Government of India to make payable legacies left to individuals outside India, particularly in view of the free remittances of some £100 million to India from immigrants in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Anthony Royle
As I have told my hon. Friend, we are looking into this question. We understand that there is no outright prohibition of the remittance of legacies from India; each case is considered on its merits by the Indian exchange control authorities. We are always ready to explore individual cases with the Government of India.
