§ Major POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India if any provision has yet been made for a new superior provincial service, in view of the cessation in 1924 of recruitment for the Indian Agricultural Service?
§ Mr. BENN
The Indian agricultural Service is to be replaced by a new superior provincial agricultural service in each Governor's Province and not by a single new superior provincial service. Special arrangements will be made for the needs of the minor administrations. New services have already been created in Burma and Bombay, and I understand that arrangements are now being made for the creation of services in Madras, Bengal and the United Provinces.
