2. Duchess of ATHOLL
asked the Secretary of State for India the number of members of the services employed in the Provincial Reserved Services and in the services which, since 1921, have been transferred in the provinces, for the years 1920 and 1932, respectively?
§ Mr. BUTLER
In 1922, which is the earliest year for which figures are available, there were 2,562 members of the All-India Services serving in the provinces in reserved fields of administration and 1,167 in transferred fields. The numbers in 1932 were 2,522 and 834 respectively. These figures do not include members of the Indian Service of Engineers serving in Madras and Bombay, as it is not possible in this service to distinguish between officers serving in the reserved and transferred field.
Duchess of ATHOLL
May I ask the hon. Gentleman whether the figures he has given me include Indians as well as British?
