HC Deb 23 April 1923 vol 163 cc1-2
3. Colonel Sir C. YATE

asked the Under-Secretary of State far India whether his attention has been called to the national flag incident at Jubbulpore, reported in the Indian Press of 19th March; and whether, in view of the fact that this was a repetition of a previous hoisting of the flag as a defiance of British authority by the municipal committee, he can state why disciplinary action, by the withdrawal of Government grants to the municipality, was not taken by the governor of the Central Provinces, instead of merely repeating his previous warning, which had been proved to be ineffective?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)

The action taken by the Deputy Commissioner in the latest case was effective, as the flag was not flown.
