HC Deb 16 March 1908 vol 186 cc191-2

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now state if Mr. Dunlop, Adviser to the Ministry of Education in Egypt, advised the Government to inflict punishment on the students of the Government schools who attended the funeral of the late Moustafa Kamel Pasha; whether some years ago when a Mr. De Vere, a professor of gymnastics, died, Mr. Dunlop requested the students of the Government schools to attend his funeral; whether any students have, in fact, been punished; and what is the nature of the punishment employed in the Government schools.


If the hon. Member will send to my right hon. friend the information on which his Question is based, my right hon. friend will ask for a Report on the question of punishments in schools.
