should be sold before expensive repairs become
imperative - which will be the case in about six months
time; and moreover, as it will take several months to
arrange for the importation of the new lorry, and sale
of the existing one* it is requested that I may be
informed very early, whether the present proposals are
approved by the G-overnment of India and if so, that
the necessary funds will be provided,
10 , I am not certain whether the fresh expenditure is
divisible with His Majesty’s Government in Great
Britain. If such be the case, I would beg to request
that the Government of India be pleased to sanction
provision of the funds in anticipation of the concurrence
of the Home Government. The original expenditure having
been sanctioned on the basis of a three years life for
the lorry, which will have been kept in service actually
for 5 i years, I presume that such concurrence would
undoubtedly be forthcoming. As explained above the
economical proposals made depend largely on our being
able to effect the purchase of the new lorry, within
heavy renewal expenses, which I think would be unwise
expenditure at this stage of the life of the lorry.
