§ 59. Major GRAHAM POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India if any applications have been received by the Imperial Council of Agricultural Research in India since its establishment for grants on behalf of research institutions; and whether it is proposed to recommend the establishment of a provincial research committee in each major province?
§ Mr. BENN
The report mentioned in the reply which I gave my hon. and gallant Friend on 6th February contains no information relating to applications for grants on behalf of research institutions but I will ask the Government of India to supply it. Up to 31st July last, a research committee had been appointed only in Madras. In the case of most of the other provinces committees were being formed or their formation was under consideration.
