asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether officers who volunteered for service with the Indian Army and have served overseas for over five years can be released at once.

Officers of the Indian Army are released under the same scheme as officers of the British Service. This, as the hon. and gallant Member is aware, is based upon age-and-service groups and not upon length of service overseas. I regret therefore that it is not practicable to adopt the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion.
