HC Deb 08 June 1899 vol 72 cc635-6
MR. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, whether he will furnish Members desiring it with copies of the circulars of the Education Department which have been issued since the publication of last year's report, so that they may be in their hands before the discussion of Scotch Estimates.


The circulars issued by the Department in the course of a year are numerous, and several of them have reference only to unimportant details of routine business. All that are of general interest are on sale, and may be obtained at small cost, and it has never therefore been considered necessary to have them printed and distributed as Parliamentary papers. In any case the request could not be complied with before Friday of next week.
