HC Deb 21 May 1867 vol 187 cc879-80

said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether it is proposed to delay the publication of the Report upon the state of Education in America and Canada, addressed by the Rev. James Fraser to the Middle-class Schools Inquiry Commission, and the Commission appointed to inquire into the Schools in Scotland, and transmitted by the last-named Commissions with their Report (see p. xxi.), but not published therewith?


said, in reply, that all the Reports of Royal Commissioners came within the province of the Home Department alone, and he was not able to give, in consequence, a very precise answer to the Question. He understood that the Scotch Commission had had this Report in type before them; and they had made frequent allusions to it in their Report, which was laid on the table on the 15th of this month. He saw Mr. Fraser's Report about half an hour ago, and he had been informed that it would be kept back until the Middle-class Schools Inquiry Commission had made their Report.
