§ 4. Sir C. YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether, considering that the rates of pay of British service officers and men of the Army in India are based upon the rates in operation in the United Kingdom upon a basis of 2s. to the rupee and that the present rate of exchange is under 1s. 5d. to the rupee, the revision of pay on let July next will be based on the rate of exchange then in existence or on the 1s. 4d. rate?
§ Mr. RICHARDS
I am not yet, in a position to say how the exchange problem will be met in the revision of the pay of commissioned ranks, which is due on 1st July next. Other ranks at present receive in effect British rates converted at, 1s. 4d.
