HC Deb 22 June 1925 vol 185 cc1053-4
6. Mr. W. BAKER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India how many Indians and how many Europeans have been appointed during the last three years to gazetted posts in the Indian Stores Department; at what salaries they were appointed; and the maximum salary of the post?


Appointments to the Indian Stores Department are made by the Government of India, but I will send the hon. Member a copy of the administration Report of the Department which will perhaps give him sufficient information for his purpose.

7. Mr. BAKER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the administration Report of the Indian Stores Department published in India at the end of May, 1925, only deals with the activities of that Department during the financial year ended 31st March, 1924; and whether he will endeavour to arrange for the publication of these Reports soon after the close of the financial year with which they deal?


I do not know the exact date of publication, but a copy of the report reached the India Office before the end of April, 1925. The hon. Member's suggestion will be communicated to the Government of India.
