HC Deb 24 July 1902 vol 111 cc1145-6
MR. CAINE (Cornwall, Camborne)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to the grievance of native engineers (assistant) of the Bombay Public Works Department with reference to promotion in the service; and, if so, will he explain why the two posts guaranteed to the first two successful candidates at the examination for the degree of licentiate of civil engineering of Bombay have been reduced to one.

(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton.) No representation has been made to me regarding the alleged grievance, nor have any information as to any reduction in the number of appointments allotted to Bombay.
