HC Deb 23 August 1945 vol 413 cc774-5
33. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India why officers discharged in India last year are still waiting for their gratuities, and more particularly, Major Forbes-Leith, details of whose case have previously been sent to him.

Mr. A. Henderson

The Government of India are adopting similar arrangements to those of the United Kingdom Government for the payment of war gratuities. In this connection I would refer the hon. and gallant Gentleman to the reply given on 21st August by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War to the question by the hon. Member for West Harrow (Mr. Bower).
