§ Sir R. LUCE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what is the number of temporary medical officers, European and Indian, respectively, serving in the Indian Medical Service at present; and what is the present strength of the Indian Army compared with that in 1922?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The number of temporary officers in the Indian Medical Service shown in the Indian Army List for April last is 138. The number of Europeans among these is negligible. The strength of the Indian Army in 1927 is, approximately, 80 per cent. of its strength in 1922.
