§ SIR CHARLES CAMERON
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, in view of his statement on the 16th instant that the question of the education of the 900 children at the Orphan Homes of Scotland was under the consideration of the Education Department, whether the result of their deliberations has yet been communicated to Mr. Quarrier; and if not, how soon such communication will be made.
§ MR. A. GRAHAM MURRAY
The legal of the question referred to have been under consideration. The matter must also be carefully considered by the Department from an administrative point of view. I can only add that the Department will communicate as early as possible with the parties interested.
