HC Deb 05 May 1938 vol 335 c1068W
Sir A. Knox

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the recent rise in the cost of living, there is any prospect for a reconsideration of the rates of pension of officers of the Indian Army, which were consolidated in August, 1934?

Lord Stanley:

I would refer to the answer I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Paddington South (Vice-Admiral Taylor) on 22nd November last. As I then stated, any question of departing from the consolidation of pensions, both civil and military, which took place in 1935 would raise larger issues than concern the Indian Army alone.
