HC Deb 30 November 1893 vol 19 cc89-90
MR. J. WILSON (Lanark, Govan)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that at the recent examination of students for admission to Training Colleges very few . were admitted, not from any lack of scholarship, but solely for want of accommodation; whether there are very serious complaints, owing to the teachers being prevented from obtaining a normal training, not that they are unable to pass the admission examination, but that the Training Colleges cannot take them in; whether he is aware that the authorities of two Training Colleges in Glasgow are prepared to admit, free of cost to the State, from 20 to 30 additional students in each College if sanctioned by the Department; and whether he will authorise the admission of additional students in those Colleges that can take them?


I am already in communication with the Training College authorities on this matter, with a view to the admission of additional students on the terms stated.
