HC Deb 06 May 1887 vol 314 c1115
DR. CAMERON (Glasgow, College)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether any of the Inspectors of the Department of Scotch Education in Argyllshire speak or understand Gaelic; and, if not, whether the Department will consider the expediency of making some arrangement for the inspection of the Gaelic-speaking districts of that county, which will enable the provisions of the Scotch Code for the encouragement of that language to be taken advantage of?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities)

One of the Inspectors in Argyllshire is qualified to conduct the examinations in Gaelic for the grant under the Scotch Code, should any application for examination in Gaelic be made. No such examination has been applied for hitherto.
