§ 1. Major GRAHAM POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will inform the House of the reasons for the discontinuance of the grant-in-aid to the Hindu University at Benares?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Wedgwood Benn)
I have no official information that the grant has in fact been discontinued. But I am aware that the discontinuance of the Government grants was recommended in 2 November by the Local Government in view of the active participation of the students and the staff of the College in the Civil Disobedience Movement.
