§ MR. MILVAIN
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether the operations of the Royal Commission to inquire into the working of the Education Acts extend to Scotland; and, if not, if there is any objection to its operations being so extended?
§ THE SECRETARY FOR, SCOTLAND (Mr. TREVELYAN)
(who replied) said: With regard to this matter, a subject in which the hon. Member for East Renfrewshire (Mr. Finlayson) is likewise interested, I understand that it is not proposed to extend the Order of Reference to the Royal Commission to the Scottish Education Acts. The Scotch 1882 Education Department has received no expression of opinion from Scotland which would lead them to think that there is any general wish to that effect.
§ SIR JAMES FERGUSSON,
on behalf of the hon. Member for Wigtownshire (Sir Herbert Maxwell), gave Notice that on the Civil Service Estimates he would call attention to this subject, and move a reduction of the Vote.
