§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the decision of the Government on the Report of Lord Herschell's Committee, and the declaration of the Secretary of State to a deputation on 22nd June that the Government had to contemplate and satisfy in some way the strong complaints of their servants in India as to the insufficiency of their salaries in consequence of the fall in exchange, he can now state what is the nature and extent of the relief which the Indian Government propose to afford its Civil and Military-servants, and how soon it will be, applied?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. G. RUSSELL, North Beds.)
The Secretary of State is not able yet to make any statement, but the question is receiving most careful consideration. It is necessary to consult the Government of India before any decision is come to.
