HC Deb 21 July 1924 vol 176 cc852-3
50. Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that there is a house shortage at Rawal Pindi and insufficient Government bungalows to accommodate married officers of the Artillery; that the rent of bungalows amounts to from 90 to 175 rupees a month, and that hotel accommodation is 500 rupees a month for two people; and whether, seeing that this makes a severe inroad on the pay of a junior officer, and in view of the fact that infantry officers receiving similar pay can obtain Government bungalows, he will take prompt action in the matter?


I will have the Government of India's attention called to the matter which the hon. and gallant Member mentions.
