5. Duchess of ATHOLL

§ 8. Major-General Sir ALFRED KNOX
asked the Secretary of State for India with regard to the schemes submitted by the Government of India for axeing 600 officers of the Indian Army by September, 1935, if he can say what terms of retirement will be granted?
§ Sir A. KNOX
When this scheme de finitely comes before the right hon. Gentleman will he make the terms of retirement as liberal as possible, in view of the fact that these people have giver the best years of their lives to India, and then find it difficult to get employment in England?
Duchess of ATHOLL
Will my right hon. Friend also take into account what I believe to be the fact, namely, that many of these men offered themselves for commissions in the Indian Army in consequence of the circular issued from the India Office during the War which painted the Service and life generally in India in very glowing terms?
