Report of the Committee Appointed by the Secretary of State for India to Enquire Into the Administration and Organisation of the Army in India (Classic Reprint) by Great Britain India Office (Paperback / softback, 2016)
Excerpt from Report of the Committee Appointed by the Secretary of State for India to Enquire Into the Administration and Organisation of the Army in India We desire also to mention that we have been requested, in considering our recommendations, to avoid, if possible, framing them in such a manner as may hereafter prove inconsistent with the gradual approach of India towards a Dominion status; and we observe that the Indian Constitutional Reforms recently proposed have in view the relaxation of the control of the Secretary of State, as well as of Parliament, over the Government of India. We are at the same time confronted with evidence of the continued reluctance of the India Office to relinquish into the hands of the Government of India greater freedom in the administration of the Army, even in cases where this could be done without compromising the administration of the Army at home or contravening the sound principle of uniformity in military policy. We are strongly of opinion that greater latitude should be allowed to the goverr-general in Council and to the commander-in-chief in India in matters affecting internal military administration, in order to secure greater efficiency, and especially the greater contentment of the Army in India.
