HC Deb 01 April 1909 vol 3 cc492-3

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the action of Sir John Hewett in asking the director of public instruction to disaffiliate the Anglo-Bengali school, of which Nepal Chandra Roy was headmaster, on the ground that the said headmaster took part in a meeting to protest against the partition of Bengal; whether, as a result, the headmaster has been deprived of his position; if so, can he state under what regulation or Act such a step was taken; and what action the Government of India propose to take in the matter?


The Secretary of State has no official information on the subject; but he will inquire.


The old story.
