§ MR. E. STANHOPE
asked whether it might now be assumed that the proposed visit of the Ameer to the Viceroy during the coming autumn would not take place?
§ MR. J. K. CROSS
Communications have passed between the Secretary of State and the Government of India on the subject referred to by the Question of the hon. Member for Stafford; but Her Majesty's Government are not at present in possession of official information which enables me to make any statement on this matter. I may say, however, that the relations existing between the Indian Government and the Ameer are of a satisfactory nature. I can only state that the contemplated visit of the Ameer to the Viceroy will very much depend on his own wishes.
