65. Mr. CHANCELLOR
asked the Undersecretary of State for India if his attention has been called to a decision in the Bombay High Court disallowing the attachment for debt of the salary of Lieutenant E. Bouchier, of the North Staffordshire 3158 Regiment, on the ground that he was an officer of the British Regular Force; whether this decision makes practically impossible the collection of debts from British military officers in India; and what action he proposes to take to remove this injustice to Indian merchants and place such officers on the same footing as other British subjects in India?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Montagu)
The Secretary of State has no information of the decision referred to, but will inquire of the Government of India regarding it.
