HC Deb 06 May 1918 vol 105 c1839

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of his previous promises regarding Indian officers' pensions, he is now prepared to direct that no officer in the Indian Army shall be required during the War to draw less pay than the pension he has earned?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Fisher)

I am not aware of any case in which an officer of the Indian Army is required to draw less pay than the pension ho has earned. If the hon. Member has in mind the deduction made from the unemployed pay of an officer of the Indian Army when he is employed by the War Office, the aggregate pay drawn by the officer is always more than the pension he would receive were he on the retired list.


If I give the right hon. Gentleman a concrete case of a general officer, will he kindly inquire into it?
