HC Deb 03 December 1945 vol 416 cc2048-9W
Captain Swingler

asked the Undersecretary of State for India how many officers and other ranks had been released by India Command under the Class B scheme up to 31st October, 1945, in the categories; architectural and civil engineering assistants, surveying draughtsmen and quantity surveyors, respectively.

Mr. A. Henderson

I assume my hon. and gallant Friend is referring to British personnel of the Indian Army. The Government of India inform me that statistics of released personnel are not kept in accordance with the nature of the work for which they are released. So far as they are aware however, no persons belonging to the categories specified by my hon. Friend have as yet been released in Class B.
