asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he will lay upon the Table of the House the Papers relating to the debts of the ex-King of Oudh, as far as respects the claims of the heirs of the late Sufdar Ally Khan, and to the passing of Act 13 of 1868 by the Legislative Council of India; and to any decision on the claim of such heirs by the Governor General of India in Council and Secretary of State for India in Council?

in reply, said, there was no objection to the production of the Papers except the expense of printing them, as they were very bulky. If the hon. and learned Gentleman who had given Notice of the Question would see him on the subject he thought he should be able to satisfy him that there was no need to publish the Papers unless he was prepared to found a practical Motion upon them.
