HC Deb 25 May 1891 vol 353 c964
MR. FRASER-MACKINTOSH (Invernessshire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether a child of seven years, healthy in body, who has received certain education in an infant school, can-be refused admission to the board school in Scotland of the district within which the child resides?


Under Article 17 (a) of the Scotch Code, no school is eligible for Annual Grants to which a child is refused admission on other than reasonable grounds. No judgment can be formed as to a particular case until the facts relating thereto are known.
