HC Deb 29 October 1906 vol 163 c670
SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)

To ask the Secretary of State for India, whether Bombay is the only province in India to which the increase of pay in the police department has not yet been extended; and whether, seeing that five lakhs were sanctioned last year and two and a half lakhs this year for that purpose, it will be possible to bring the new re-organisation scheme into force with effect from the 1st April, 1906, in Bombay, so far as relates to the European administration officers.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) The new scale of pay was extended to the Bombay Presidency on the 31st August last, with effect from the 1st April, 1906.
