HC Deb 27 March 1913 vol 50 c1854W
Captain CLIVE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he is aware that discontent, on account of their salaries and prospects, exists among the military officers of the Military Accounts Department in India; that in reply to a number of memorials the Government of India have acknowledged that, the salary and prospects of the junior officers of the department require amelioration, and that they are prepared to assist them, provided that any advancement given now shall be counterbalanced by retardation of promotion later on; and, if so, will he state on what grounds such retardation is justifiable, seeing that discontent exists among the senior as well as the junior grades; and will he cause full inquiry to be made as to the causes of this discontent?


I have no information on the subject, but will inquire.
