HC Deb 06 April 1925 vol 182 c1796
3. Brigadier-General CHARTERIS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that the recent augmentation of pay of British officers in India, both of the British Army and of the Indian Army, applies to all officers except those of the Royal Army Medical Corps, the Indian Medical Service, Army Dental Corps, and the Royal Army Veterinary Corps; that this is certain to prejudice future recruitments for these essential services in India; and will he state the reason for this decision?


Officers of the Indian Medical Service in military employ have been granted the same pay concession as those in civil employ as a result of the recommendations of the Commission on the Superior Civil Services in India, and the same passage concessions as have recently been granted to officers of the Indian Army. The case of the other services mentioned has been reserved for further consideration, as there is a possibility of changes affecting them in the near future.
