§ MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether it is the intention to alter the rule that all Queen's Cadets and honorary Queen's Cadets have the first choice of joining the Indian Staff Corps before the next examination; and whether he can state why this advantage is given to Queen's Cadets and honorary Queen's Cadets?
There is no intention to alter the Rule. But I would point out that the advantage, though given to all Queen's Cadets, is not given to all honorary Queen's Cadets, but only to the five appointed by the Secretary of State in Council, who are sons of Indian officers. The advantage is given to these cadets in consideration of their fathers' services to the State.
