§ 46. Sir FREDERICK LOW
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the attention of the Secretary of State has been drawn to the memorials submitted by Mr. C.O. Jolly, late an officer of the Indian Telegraph Department, who, after fourteen years' service, was called on to resign by the Director-General of Posts and Telegraphs; and, if so, will he state whether Mr. Jolly was ever permitted to exercise the option allowed to officers in the provincial service at the time of the reorganisation of the department in April, 1910?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Montagu)
A memorial was addressed direct to the Secretary of State by Mr. Jolly in February last, and, in reply, he was informed that, under the Memorial Rules, it could not be considered unless and until it was received through the usual channel of the Government of India. Until it is so received, the Secretary of State is unable to express an opinion on his case.
