§ SIR CARNE RASCH (Essex, Chelmsford)
; I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can state why the flag on the War Office was mast high on Friday last when the Union Jack on all other public buildings in London was half-mast, on account of the death of the Duke of Cambridge.
§ MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
The flag was correctly and by order hoisted mast high on Friday, the 18th instant, that being the anniversary of the birth of Her Royal Highness Princess Louise.
§ SIR CARNE RASCH
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Admiralty flag was hoisted half-mast, and can he say whether the hoisting of the flag at full mast on the War Office was conducted by the same official who hoisted it at half-mast on the relief of Lady-smith?
