§ MR. ANGUS SUTHERLAND (Sutherlandshire)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the attention of the Secretary for Scotland has been called to the desirability, in taking the Census of the Gaelic-speaking population, of having two columns on the subject in the Schedule issued to householders; (1) for the enumeration of such as can speak Gaelic only; and (2) for the enumeration of such as can speak both English and Gaelic; and whether this will be kept in view in drawing up the Schedule referred to?
§ * THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. P. B. ROBERTSON,) Bute
The attention of the Secretary for Scotland has already been called to the subject of the hon. Member's question, and the matter is under consideration.
