asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether European judges, who were appointed judges in India before August, 1947, and who have resigned or may resign in consequence of changed conditions, will receive compensation; who will pay them compensation; what amount; and on what conditions.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

The hon. Member may by now have seen the answer to a written Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Bexley (Mr. Bramall) on 16th November, in which I set out the scale of, and the conditions for, the grant of compensation to European Judges of High Courts in India, Pakistan and Burma who retire owing to the changed conditions. The cost of compensation will be borne by the Exchequer of the United Kingdom, and payment will be made by the Commonwealth Relations Office
