asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is yet in a position to make a statement in regard to the future of the Indian Army.

This matter is under urgent consideration in India, and I have, therefore, nothing to add to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 3rd June.

The right hon. and learned Gentleman will be aware of the deep anxiety amongst all ranks and communities in this magnificent volunteer Army. Would the Government, therefore, take the earliest possible steps to allay that anxiety?

This matter is obviously a question which will have to be settled by the major interests in India itself, and not here.
