asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the number of British troops which will be stationed in India if the recommendations of Lord Inchcape's Committee are accepted?

If the proposals of Lord Inchcape's Committee are adopted the total number of British fighting troops in India will be 63,040. These figures do not include administrative services as the proposals in these cases take the form of financial reductions and no proposals for reduction in terms of men are made.
