§ 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.
