HC Deb 18 May 1868 vol 192 c426

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, Whether any decision has been arrived at with reference to the proposal of Sir Alexander Grant for placing the higher appointments of the Educational Service in the Bombay Presidency on a new footing?


said, in reply, that no decisions had yet been arrived at, as the recommendations from Bengal differed somewhat from those of Bombay, and they would be considered together. He might state, however, that, to a considerable extent, the proposals of Sir Alexander Grant would be agreed to. The social position of those engaged in the Educational Service would be improved, and there would be some increase in their salaries, but no decision had been arrived at in reference to pensions.
