asked the Under Secretary of State for India if he has received the views of the Government of India on the question of the adjustment of pay and pensions of those officers of the Indian Army who were retained in the Army on account of the War beyond the date on which they became due to be placed on the retired list; and whether he can now make a statement on the subject?

I have not yet received the views of the Government of India on this question. A reminder is being sent to them.
