§ SIR CHARLES RUSSELL
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Why the prize money known as "the Begum Koote Lucknow," has not been paid; and if he has any objection to lay the General Order relating to the same upon the Table?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE,
in reply said, that the facts concerning this treasure were, that certain soldiers on entering Lucknow discovered some valuable articles which were decided to be not of the nature of prize money, but of treasure trove, that 25 per cent of the value of these articles had been given to the troops, and that there was nothing more to be paid. The whole Correspondence on the subject was presented to Parliament in May, 1876.
