§ 3. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether the proposals of 878 the Government of India to carry out the recommendations of the Public Services Commission have yet been received; and what action is to be taken in the matter?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Montagu)
Proposals that have been received and carried into effect are increased pay for the Indian police according to a time-scale and increased pay for the Indian Medical Service. Proposals that have been received and are under consideration are the reorganisation of the Indian Forest Service and the Finance Department, and interim proposals as to certain officers in the Indian Educational Service. On other matters the proposals of the Government of India have still to be received.
§ Colonel YATE
Have the proposals with regard to the increase of pay and pensions of the Indian Services yet been received?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
My hon. and gallant Friend will probably see what has happened with regard to the Indian police and Indian medical services. The other proposals are not wholly the same as the general proposals, but are founded upon them. I shall be happy to confer with my hon. and gallant Friend about the details.
