HC Deb 21 December 1925 vol 189 cc2003-4W

asked the Undersecretary of State for India whether he is yet in a position to give a definite decision in regard to the claims of the subordinate officers of the Indian Army Department (Commissaries, Assistant and Deputy-Commissaries).


My Noble Friend has sanctioned a revised system of pensions for this class of officer. The new system provides for an element in respect of Indian service being added to the pension admissible under British rules. All officers who retire on or after 1st October, 1925, will be eligible for pension under the new rules. The details are about to be announced in India, and a copy of the announcement will be supplied to my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
