MR. HERBERT (Buckinghamshire, Wycombe)
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether he is prepared to lay upon the Table the opinions of Lord Cromer, Lord Elgin, Sir H. Brackenbury, Sir E. Collen, and Sir D. Barbour, obtained last year by the Committee appointed to report upon changes in the position of the Military Member of the Viceroy's Council in India.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) The opinions of Lord Cromer, Lord Elgin, Sir H. Brackenbury, and Sir E. Collen wore obtained privately by my predecessor for his own information and not by the Committee. There is no record of them in the India Office. Sir D. Barbour appeared before the Committee, but no record has been kept of his opinion.
