I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether he will give this House any opportunity of discussing the serious steps taken by the Government of India to charge the Indian taxpayers with an additional annual burden of £300,000 in accordance with the recent recommendation of the Committee on Army Charges.
§ MR. ASQUITH
No, Sir. I am afraid that no opportunity for such a discussion can be provided this session.
Is it not a matter of great interest to the Empire that this extra burden should be placed on India? Ought this House not to have an opportunity of discussing it?
