§ Sir C. YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether steps have been 1522W taken to continue in force those provisions of the Indian Soldiers Civil Litigation Act that otherwise lapse as the result of the termination of the War, so as to secure soldiers absent on service from anxiety about their homes?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The provisions of the Indian Soldiers (Litigation) Act, 1918, will continue to apply as a permanent arrangement to soldiers whose service has been declared by the Governor-General of India in Council to be service under war conditions. I cannot say precisely what action has been, or is intended to be, taken by the Government of India in regard to such declarations, but I will make inquiry.
