HC Deb 28 February 1905 vol 141 c1465
SIR JOHN GORST (Cambridge University)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the closing of Cooper's Hill College, it has been determined to give a temporary monopoly of the instruction of forest students to the University of Oxford; if so, whether this scheme is a strictly temporary expedient for one year only, and whether in a permanent scheme the graduates of all Universities in the United Kingdom will enjoy equal opportunities for entering the Indian Forest Service; and whether he will lay the correspondence on this subject and the regulations for entrance and instruction of Indian forest students upon the Table of the House.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The details of the scheme are still under consideration, and I will ask my right hon. friend to repeat his Question shortly.
