§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
To ask the Secretary of State for 947 India why the privilege granted to officers on combined leaves under civil leave rules of drawing their privilege pay at the Home Treasury has not been extended to military officers generally; and whether he will consider the advisability of granting this concession.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) The officers to whom the concession was granted draw their leave pay in arrear, but officers on combined leave under military leave rules draw the whole of their privilege leave pay in advance on leaving India. I do not see, therefore, that the concession would be of any value to them.
