HC Deb 13 February 1933 vol 274 c645W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India are prepared to appoint a committee to inquire into the discontent amongst discharged and disabled soldiers and the widows and dependants of those who gave their lives in the Great War; and whether the committee will be instructed to inquire into cases of the forfeiture of pensions on the ground of sympathy with or participation in political activities?


The Indian Soldiers' Board looks after the interests and welfare of discharged and disabled Indian soldiers and the dependants of deceased soldiers; and I know of no reason why a Special committee should be appointed.
