§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether any decision has yet been arrived at with regard to the various questions of Exchange Compensation, particularly in relation to officers whose salaries are regulated by statute, and questions arising from domicile; and, if so, whether he can state the decision arrived at, or will agree to present the correspondence on the subject?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
The subject of Exchange Compensation has been for some time past under the consideration of the Secretary of State in Council. We have made some progress towards settling some of the questions involved; but there are others of a very complicated and far-reaching character still to be considered. I hope that a general decision will be given before long.
