HC Deb 08 August 1905 vol 151 c604
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether the office of Director of Public Instruction in Bengal is likely to be shortly vacant; and whether he will direct that the office shall be filled by some person of experience in educational work in India.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) I would refer the hon. Member to my reply on the 3rd instant† to a Question by the hon. Member for West Donegal on this subject. I see no reason to interfere with the discretion of the Lieutenant-Governor in filling up the appointment referred to.
