HC Deb 17 March 1885 vol 295 c1432

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether a Despatch has been received by the Secretary of State for India from the Government of India, stating its views on the subject of the rules for admission to the Indian Civil Service, and of the Statutory Civil Service; and, if so, whether any reply to that Despatch has been sent by the Secretary of State; and, whether he will lay the Documents upon the Table of the House?


There has been Correspondence between the Government of India and the Secretary of State on the subject referred to. It is not yet complete, and as the matter is still under consideration, it is not expedient that the documents should be laid on the Table of the House.
