§ 1. Mr. BERNAYS
asked the Secretary of State for India what is the number of Indians at the present time who are members of the Civil Service in India; and what is the proportion that they bear to the number of European members of the Civil Service in India?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Sir Samuel Hoare)
I assume that my hon. Friend is referring to the Indian Civil Service and not to the whole of the Civil Services of India. The number of Indian members of that service on 1st January, 1931, was 427 or 33 per cent. of the total.
