HC Deb 07 March 1904 vol 131 c283

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India have had under consideration any suggestion or proposal for the abolition of tunics for officers in the Bengal Cavalry Regiments and the substitution of kurtas in their places; and, if so, whether, in the interest of economy, he will veto a change which would entail considerable expenditure on every officer of the Indian Army affected.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) No proposal to the effect described in the Question has been brought before the Government of India. If it should hereafter come forward for consideration the expense which it would entail upon the officers will be duly taken into account.
