HC Deb 31 October 1916 vol 86 cc1562-3W
Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the recommendation of the Bengal Chamber of Commerce, measures will now be taken to make the Military Service Act applicable to Europeans in India?


The answer is in the negative. I am not aware that the Bengal Chamber of Commerce has ever made such a recommendation as my hon. and gallant Friend suggests.
