§ MR. SHIRLEY
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether proposals were made by Lord Ripon's Indian Government, and agreed to by the India Office, to modify the Indian Military leave rules, and to arrange that in future all leave should count for pension; and, if so, what is the cause of the delay in communicating this decision to the officers concerned?
THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir UGHTRED KAY-SHUTTLE-WORTH)
I understand that the delay is caused by the difficulty of settling certain important points involved in a change in the military leave rules. The attention of the Secretary of State is being given to the subject.
