HC Deb 19 February 1900 vol 79 c371
*MR. ORR-EWING () Ayr Burghs

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether his attention has been drawn to the encouragement promised by the Committee of Council to the managers of public elementary schools in England, to adopt the proposal to inscribe upon their walls the names and record of their old scholars who have distinguished themselves by acts of heroism and self-sacrifice, or have earned in other ways a high place in their country's regard; and whether the Scottish Education Department will adopt the same course towards schools in Scotland.


The Department is in full sympathy with the suggestion referred to in the question of the Hon. Member, and would gladly see it adopted where the school authorities thought it expedient.
