HC Deb 01 December 1930 vol 245 cc1763-4
5. Major POLE

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can give any information in regard to the proportion of the applications made to the deputy commissioners and through the local educational authorities for permission to appear at the Sandhurst entrance examinations at Delhi during the last 10 years which have been turned down by the provincial selection boards; and whether he can give actual numbers?


Under the system of recruitment which has been in force since November, 1928, there are no provincial selection boards. I regret I have no information regarding the number of candidates who were rejected by provincial selection boards under the system in force prior to November, 1928.
