§ 1. Colonel Sir CHARLES YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the terms of the new Bill which is to be introduced shortly by the Government of 3 India to municipalise the government of cantonments in India under the reform scheme; and whether under the changed conditions of service Indian Army officers in civil employment as cantonment magistrates will now be permitted to retire on proportionate pensions the same as other officers in similar positions?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)
There are not considered to be sufficient grounds for permitting cantonment magistrates to retire on proportionate pensions under present conditions, but if the Bill, which is at present before the Legislative Assembly, pass into law, their position may require further consideration.
§ Earl WINTERTON
Obviously, if I say it is going to receive consideration, it will receive consideration.
