HC Deb 09 February 1931 vol 248 cc1-2

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 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.
