§ SIR R. TEMPLE (Surrey, Kingston)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India have submitted proposals tending to ameliorate the conditions of service, furlough, &c., of European officials, of the Indian police and other branches of the Civil (Uncovenanted) Service of India; and, if so, whether any decision has been come to thereon; and, if not, whether a speedy one may be expected?
§ MR. HERBERT GLADSTONE
, replying in the absence of MR. H. H. FOWLER, said: The Government of India have submitted proposals respecting the leave rules of the various Civil Departments in India. These are now under the consideration of the Secretary of State, but before a final decision can be passed on all points, a further reference to the Government of India will probably be necessary.
