asked the UnderSecretary of State for India if he will make a statement regarding the security of the pensions of the Bengal Government's non-Asiatic servants.

It is intended to negotiate agreements in regard to matters arising out of the transfer of power in India with the representatives of those to whom it is decided that power shall be transferred.
