HC Deb 15 November 1926 vol 199 c1523
6. Colonel DAY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what action is being taken with a view to carrying into effect the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Superior Civil Service in India regarding the Indianisation of railways?


My Noble Friend in April last approved of a scheme submitted by the Railway Board for the future recruitment of superior staff for the Indian State-worked railways, with the object of giving effect as rapidly as possible to the recommendations of the Lee Commission. The companies working State railways have also agreed to adopt these recommendations.


Is it not the fact that all the railways in India are bringing these recommendations into effect as rapidly as possible?


Yes, that is so.
