HC Deb 06 May 1901 vol 93 cc765-6
DR. MACNAMARA (Camberwell, N.)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, having regard to the provisions of the Code of Regulations for Continuation Classes, issued by the Scotch Education Department for 1901, it will be competent for Scotch school boards to assist out of the school board rates in Scotland the gratuitous instruction of evening school pupils, without restriction as to age, in such subjects as those set forth in the Code of Regulations for continuation classes, as, for example, algebra, dynamics, naval architecture, electrical industries, mining, and machine construction.


The question raised by the hon. Member is one primarily for the consideration of school boards, who will no doubt be guided by their own legal advisers. I am not aware that the legality of any action taken in the direction indicated has been challenged.
