§ 2. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether the proposals of the Government of India to carry out the recommendations of the Public Services Commission as regards the Indian Forest Service, the Finance Department, and the Indian Educational Service that were under consideration in May last have now been carried into effect; if not, when will they be carried into effect; and whether the proposals of the Government of India regarding the remaining Indian services have now been received and considered?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The Government of India have now announced a revised ad interim scale of pay for the Indian Education Service and are about to announce a revised scale for the Forest Department. Their proposals for the Finance Department are still under discussion. Last month I received recommendations with regard to a number of other Departments, and recommendations 1270 with regard to most of the remaining Departments are, I understand, on their way home. I propose to deal with all these as expeditiously as possible.
