HC Deb 16 May 1938 vol 336 c53W
Sir J. Wardlaw-Milne

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India on what grounds the Government of India have cancelled the presidency town's compensatory allowances to Civil servants and others who have hitherto received these payments; and what reply has been given to the strong protests made against this decision?

Lord Stanley:

I understand that the Government of India have withdrawn these allowances from officers of their central departments serving in Bombay and Calcutta on the ground that they are no longer compensatory but have become a source of profit. My Noble Friend is aware that protests have been made and is expecting to receive the views of the Government of India on such of these protests as have been made by officers who were appointed by the Secretary of State in Council.
