§ SIR RICHARD TEMPLE (Worcester, Evesham)
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether Her Majesty's Government will obtain the opinion of the Government of India regarding the concession of more favourable rates of pension, than heretofore, to the members of the Forest Service appointed by the Secretary of State for India?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JOHN GORST) (Chatham)
The pensions of the Forst Service were brought by the Government of India under the consideration of the Secretary of State in Council in July, 1885. It was then decided that there were no sufficient reasons for altering the rates of pension, and the Secretary of State sees no reason for reconsidering this decision.
