asked the Under-Secretary of State for India how many officers and other ranks, respectively, are at present serving on the Indian establishment each of the Royal Indian Navy, the Indian Army and the Royal Indian Air Force.

The Government of India have informed me that it would be contrary to their policy to disclose such information regarding their Armed Forces. I therefore regret that I cannot give the hon. and gallant Member the information for which he has asked.

Would the right hon. and learned Gentleman be prepared to give the information as far as it concerns British officers and other ranks?
