§ MR. WEIR
To ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state the entire amount which has been advanced in each Presidency in India under the Lands Improvements Acts and the Agriculturists Loans Act, and how much has been repaid by the agriculturists in each Presidency.
(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton). The subjoined figures, which are taken from the published accounts of the Government of India, show the sums advanced to and recovered from agriculturists for land improvements and for other purposes in each province during the period 1888–1901. The accounts do not enable me to give similar information for the preceding years.
