Can my right hon. Friend say the number of persons serving on the Central Board of Revenue, and by whom they are appointed?

I do not think that that information was asked for in the question.

Following is the information:

The members of the Board are Messrs. A. R. L. Tottenham, C.I.E., I.C.S., and A. H. Lloyd, C.I.E., I.C.S. The Board, whose powers and duties are defined in certain Indian statutes, is mainly concerned with the administration of the law relating to Customs, Income Tax, opium and salt, and—so far as the Central Government is concerned with these subjects—Excise and Stamp Duties.
