The Ordinance referred to by the hon. Member does not deal with the matter. The Prisons Ordinance, 1914 (in Section 94), provides that for aggravated, more serious, or repeated, offences a prisoner may be sentenced to be flogged by a superintendent or a Visiting Justice. There is no distinction as to race.
