§ Major POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India what contributions, if any, have been made by the railway department to the central road fund in India, as recommended by a special committee of both Houses of the Indian Legislature in 1928?
§ Mr. BENN
The recommendation of the committee was that the Indian Railways Act and the Devolution Rules should be amended so as to enable the railway administration to contribute towards the construction and maintenance of feeder roads. No such amendments have yet been made.
