§ MR. REES
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether he can now state the approximate date on which the Indian Budget will be taken.
1708 (Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) The Indian Financial Statement will be presented at Calcutta on the 20th instant, and discussed a week later. It will be presented to Parliament as soon as it is received in this country, i.e., early in May, and the usual discussion will take place as soon thereafter as the state of public business permits, I hope at an early date.
