HC Deb 03 December 1920 vol 135 c1613W

asked the Secretary of State for India if he is aware that the pensions for retired Indian uncovenanted civil servants has not been raised for very many years; that, in view of the increased cost of living, they had become inadequate before the War and have become more so since; that the Public Services Commission, appointed by the Secretary of State for India in 1915, recommended certain increases, and that no increases have been made; and whether he can say when it is intended to increase these pensions?


My hon. Friend is evidently not aware of the measures taken by me in August, 1919, as a result of the recommendations of the Public Services Commission to which he refers. The measures are given in detail in a Resolution of the Government of India of 15th November, 1919, of which I will send the hon. Member a copy.
