§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, before deciding on a new scheme of Naval education he will communicate with the authorities of the great public Schools in Edinburgh Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, and elsewhere in Scotland, and also with the Education Institute of Scotland?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
If the hon. and learned Gentleman will kindly ascertain for me whether there would be any inclination to establish Navy classes in Scotch Schools, and whether their system of education would generally fall in with the preparation for the Britannia, I shall, of course, be prepared to place myself in communication with any educational establishment likely to co-operate successfully. But at present there is scarcely sufficient before me to entitle me to trouble Scotch educational authorities in the matter.
