HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 c1070W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether carrying out the Indianisation of the Indian services under the Montagu-Chelmsford reform scheme will result in any senior British Imperial service officers being superseded by junior Indian provincial service officers?


If my hon. and gallant Friend will refer to the Report of the Debate in the Indian Legislative Assembly on the 17th February, 1921 (a copy of which I shall be glad to send him), he will see that the Government of India have made it clear that they have no intention of carrying out Indianisation by selecting junior provincial service officers for promotion over the heads of senior officers.
