§ MR. KING (Hull, Central)
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether Indian colonels drawing colonels' allowances, who reside in any of the French, Portuguese, or Dutch Settlements in the neighbourhood of British India, can draw their allowance in sterling through their attorney in London, as permitted to do if resident in Ceylon; and, if not, why not?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JOHN GORST) (Chatham)
No application from any Indian colonel residing in any French, Portuguese, or Dutch Settlement in the neighbourhood of British India to draw his allowance in sterling has been made to the Secretary of State. Such an application, if made, would receive due consideration.
