asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it is true, as stated in the public journals, that the Hon. A. Hay, recently an officer in the Scots Guards, has joined the Burmah Police Force as a Superintendent of Police; whether that officer now belongs to the Indian Staff Corps, or to any of the Regular Services; if he has been appointed to the Burmah Police, who appointed him; and whether he has passed in the Native language, and his fitness for the post has been tested by examination, or otherwise?


1. Yes. 2. No. 3. The Governor General of India. 4. The Secretary of State is not aware what examinations Mr. Hay has passed. An examination in the Native language has to be undergone before a right to permanent employment in the police is attained.
