§ 61. Colonel Sir C. YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what would be the extra charge, present and recurrent, to the Indian Treasury of increasing the Indian Civil Service pensions of men retiring after the War,i.e., from 1st April, 1919, by £100 for five years' active service after the present pension is earned and £200 for 10 years of such service; and whether the Secretary of State will consider the question of granting this?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)
I would invite the attention of the hon. and gallant Member to the answer given to the similar question by the hon. Member for Seven Oaks (Sir T. Bennett) on the 10th May. As regards the concluding words of the present question, I am afraid that the answer must be in the negative.
