§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether the Secretary of State has yet received any reply to a communication stated in an official letter from Sir A. Godley, dated 25th January, 1893, to have been made to the Government of India in relation to the settlement by the Government of the unredressed grievances of the European Civil Service (Indian Uncovenanted), on which a Select Committee of this House reported in 1890, and whether he will lay it upon the Table; and when a decision on these questions can be expected?
MR. G. RUSSELL
(1.) The reply of the Government of India was received by last week's mail, and is now under consideration. It cannot be laid on the Table till the decision of the Secretary of State in Council has been conveyed to the Government of India. (2.) No time will be lost in coming to a decision, but the matter is not yet in a stage when it is possible to fix a date.
