§ MR. DUNBAR
asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether the India Office has as yet arrived at any decision on the subject of the promotion and retirement of Officers of the late Indian Army; and, if so, when the Warrant relating thereto will be published?
§ LORD GEORGE HAMILTON
No, Sir. All officers of the late Indian Army, who, though transferred to the Imperial Army, remain under Indian pension regulations, are governed as regards pay and promotion by the Royal Warrants issued by the War Office, subject to such provision as the Secretary of State for War may consider necessary to preserve any rights secured to them on their amalgamation with the Imperial Army. The Royal Warrant before the House was prepared in consultation with the Secretary of State for India.
