HC Deb 18 July 1907 vol 178 c903
SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether any information exists at the India Office with reference to a scheme of reorganisation for the Public Works Department in India, which was reported to be under consideration by the Government of India two or three years ago; and whether any scheme for improving the pay and prospects of the Department has as yet been before the Secretary of State.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) An increase of pay in the administrative grades of the engineering branch of the Public Works Department was sanctioned by my predecessor in August, 1905. I am not aware of any other scheme under consideration for improving the pay and prospects of the Department.
