HC Deb 03 June 1935 vol 302 cc1511-2
1. Captain CAZALET

asked the Secretary of State for India how many Indians are to-day in receipt of pensions paid from Government funds in India; and the total sum involved in any one year?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Sir Samuel Hoare)

The amount paid in India from Central and Provincial Revenues in respect of Civil and Military Pensions during 1933-34, the last year for which complete accounts are available, was Rs.960 lakhs. I regret that I have no information as to the proportion of this sum representing payments to Indians, or as to the numbers of pensioners.


What proportion of that sum is remitted to this country every year?


I think I can give that answer, with notice.
