HC Deb 06 August 1912 vol 41 c2899
16. Sir J. D. REES

asked whether appointments from Home to High Court benches in India come within the ambit of the reference to the Indian Public Service Commission?


I am not sure that it is a part of my functions to interpret the terms of reference to a Royal Commission. That is a matter for the Commission itself, but it seems to me clear that by the terms of reference the Commission can only concern itself with the Indian judiciary in so far as it is recruited from the Indian Civil Service and other Civil Services, Imperial and provincial.
