§ 118. Commander Noble
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India when it is expected to revise the pensions of British officers of the Royal Indian Navy on the same terms as those given in Cmd. 6750.
§ 119. Mr. D. Marshall
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he is aware that a lieutenant-commander's pension after 22 years' service in the Royal Indian Navy is £270 10s., whereas in the equivalent rank in the Indian Army it is £475; that these discrepancies occur at all ranks; and, in view of the impending constitutional change in India, if he will reconsider the question of pensions and revise those pensions which are out of line with today's cost of living and which compare unfavourably with those of sister Services.
§ Mr. A. Henderson
I am aware of the existing discrepancy between Royal Indian Navy pensions and those of the Indian Army. The question of applying the new 1945 British pension scales to the Royal Indian Navy as they have been applied to the Indian Army is under consideration by the Government of India.
