HC Deb 19 February 1878 vol 237 c1925

who had a Notice on the Paper of a Motion for an Address to Her Majesty, praying that she would be graciously pleased to direct that an addition should be made to the Scottish Education Code for 1878, providing, in the Gaelic speaking districts of Scotland, and where the School Boards so resolve, that instruction in and by means of Gaelic shall be regarded and dealt with as a proper subject of and means of education, said, with the leave of the House he would now withdraw it. Since his Motion was put on the Notice Paper, the Education Department had agreed to make certain additions to the New Scottish Education Code, which, to some extent, met the object he had in view. It would, therefore, be unnecessary for him to bring forward his Motion that night.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
