§ Sir C. YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that the widows of officers of Gurkha regiments killed in the War are unable to dispose of the houses owned by their late husbands in the various hill cantonments occupied by Gurkha regiments owing to the peculiar circumstances connected with officers' quarters in those cantonments; and whether the Government of India can now remedy these grievances by purchasing these houses, as they have said they would be willing to do when opportunity arose?
§ Mr. RICHARDS
The Government of India are being asked for a report on this1360W matter, and I will communicate with the hon. and gallant Member on receipt of their reply.
