HC Deb 08 March 1926 vol 192 cc1881-2

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is now in a position to state the intentions of the Government of India in the matter of bringing certain provincial officers of non-Asiatic domicile under the provisions laid down in the Report of the Lee Commission?


The Government of India telegraph that the first instalment of their recommendations in the case of officers appointed by the Secretary of State in Council holding miscellaneous appointments under local Governments and Government of India were despatched by the mail of 4th March, and that a further instalment will be sent this week. As regards officers appointed by authorities other than the Secretary of State in Council, the recommendations of all local Governments have now been received and are under examination by the Government of India who will shortly submit their recommendations to my Noble Friend. I would add that while my Noble Friend much regrets the delay, all possible steps have been and will be taken both here and in India to expedite a final decision.
