§ 1. Wing-Commander JAMES
asked the Secretary of State for India what is the existing situation in respect of the recruitment of officers for the Indian Forest Service?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Butler)
For reasons of economy, such vacancies as now exist in the Indian Forest Service are being left unfilled, and recruitment for this service is therefore at present suspended.
§ 2. Wing-Commander JAMES
asked the Secretary of State for India what facilities are at present in existence in India for training Indian entrants to the Forest Service?
§ Mr. BUTLER
The Indian Forest Service College at Dehra Dun, where candidates recruited in India to the Forest Services were trained, was closed down in November, 1932, owing to the absence of any recruits requiring training. It can, however, be reopened if and when the training facilities it provided are again required.
