SIR SEYMOUR KING
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether he has received, through the Indian Government, memorials addressed to him by twelve European police officers in the Madras police force who complain of having been superseded, to the injury of their immediate and future prospects, by the importation from Burma of an official of junior standing; whether he has yet received any official information as to the reasons which led the Government of Madras to assign to the officer transferred from the Burma to the Madras police the particular place in the list allotted to him; whether it is proposed to relieve the grievances complained of in the Burma police, by further transfers of officers to other provinces; and, if so, whether due regard will be had in giving them appointments to the interests and prospects of those who are already on the lists in those provinces.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) The memorials have not yet been received through the Government of India, and I am afraid that I can at present add nothing to the Answer given to the hon. Member on 14th May last.†
