§ Sir C. YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India what steps have been taken in the case of the grant of a marriage allowance to the married officers of the British and Indian Armies serving in India similar to the grant given to married officers serving at home?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
No decision on the matter has been arrived at. Even if the suggested concession were approved in 1231W principle it could not be carried into effect in the present state of the Government of India's finances.
