§ MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the repeated allegations regarding the unequal distribution of State patronage between the different communities of India, he will call for a comparative return of officers in the service of the State in the gazetted and non-gazetted appointments above the menial grades in the two provinces of Bengal, in the Punjaub, Sind, and the Madras Presidency.
§ (Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) The statistics required up to 1904 were published in the Gazette of India in May of that year. A copy of the Gazette will be found in the Library of the House.
