MR. MACDONALD CAMERON
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education if he is aware that there are assayers, metallurgists, and mining men who are in the habit of using the initials that denote the Associateship of the Royal School of Mines, but who have not graduated at that institution; and whether the Council of the School is in a position to effectually deal with such 1414 persons; and, if not, whether he will take steps to invest the Council with the power necessary to do so?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir W. HART DYKE,) Kent, Dartford
General statements to the effect have, I believe, been made, but no specific cases have been brought to my knowledge. If any such are laid before the Department, the opinion of the Law Officers of the Crown will be taken on the subject.
