HC Deb 01 May 1913 vol 52 c1401W

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government will give instructions that the flag shall be flown on all Government offices on Empire Day?

Mr. LLOYD GEORGE (for the Prime Minister)

No, Sir; Empire Day is not officially celebrated in this country, where we keep officially the King's Birthday.


asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will encourage the attendance of Territorial units and Officers' Training Corps at any Empire Day demonstration which the units are willing to attend, with a view to encouraging the observance of that festival?

Colonel SEELY

I must refer the hon. Gentleman to my reply to a question on this subject put by the hon. Member for the Devizes Division last Tuesday.
