MR. HERBERT ROBERTS
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether he will lay upon the Table a Return showing all new posts with a salary of £400 and upwards a year, created by the Government of India during the last seven years, together with the names of the officers at present holding these appointments.
§ MR. MORLEY
The labour involved in preparing a Return for seven years would be very great, but I have no objection to giving lists of appointments and salaries for the last four years, as in the Return asked for in the previous Question. Owing to the changes constantly taking place in the personnel list of the names of the officers holding the appointments would be of slight value, and I do not propose to include them. Lists are periodically published from which they may be ascertained.
