§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland, having regard to the fact that 56,158 scholars in public schools in Scotland received instruction in cookery during the year 1903, will he state how many of these scholars were taught cookery in schools in the Highland crofting counties, and at how many schools in the crofting counties cookery was taught; and, seeing that a teacher of cookery must, as a rule, hold a certificate from a training school of cookery recognised by the Department, will he state what number of teachers were employed, and how many held the certificate referred to.
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. SCOTT DICKSON,) Glasgow, Bridgton
2,904 scholars were taught cookery in fifty-one schools in the Highland crofting counties. Forty-four teachers were employed, and of these forty-two held certificates recognised by the Department.
