§ MR. DALRYMPLE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he would be disposed to convene a meeting of Scotch Members for the purpose of ascertaining their views as to the question of placing education in Scotland under the charge of a Secretary for Scotland, so that, if opinions appear to be sharply divided, or decidedly adverse to the proposal, the Secretary for Scotland Bill may be liberated to further and more rapid progress through Parliament?
THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR),
who replied to the Question, said, they should be glad to learn from the hon. Members from Scotland whether there was any prevalent desire for such a meeting.
