asked the Lord Advocate, Whether it is the intention of the Government to give early attention to the claims of the Scottish Universities for improved organisation; and, whether, if the Scottish Universities Bill, which miscarried last Session and the previous Session be introduced again, the Government will undertake that it shall be submitted to the House in its several stages with reasonable despatch?
THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR)
In the present state of Parliamentary Business my hon. Friend will not expect that I should give any pledge as to the particular time at which the Scottish Universities Bill will be introduced: but the Government fully recognize the special claims which the subject of that measure has upon their attention, and when the House resumes the usual course of Business it will certainly be kept in view.
