HC Deb 09 May 1905 vol 145 c1329

To ask the Lord-Advocate whether he is aware that in the Education (Scotland) Bill which was brought before Parliament last year, provision was made for Inverness to be one of the four places at which the proposed provincial councils would meet; and, in view of the fact that the County Council of Ross and Cromarty, at their meeting on the 2nd instant, protested against St. Andrews being substituted for Inverness, will he consider the expediency of falling in with the views of the county council on the subject.

(Answered by Mr. Scott Dickson.) I may refer the hon. Member to what I said on this matter on the Second Reading of the Bill.
