§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether his despatch, approving of special terms of retirement for certain service officers of the Indian Public Works Department from Cooper's Hill, has yet arrived in India; and whether he will arrange for its simultaneous publication in this country and in India.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex,, Ealing
The despatch of the Secretary of State has been in the hands of the Government of India for sonic days, and doubtless the officers who are eligible for 1411 the special terms of pension sanctioned in that despatch have been communicated with. The Government of India do not propose to publish the terms sanctioned by the Secretary of State.
