§ MR. GULLAND (Dumfries Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware of the widespread disappointment in Scotland at the failure to pass the Education (Scotland) Bill; and whether he will reintroduce the Bill early next session and ensure its passage.
§ MR. SINCLAIR
The Government shares deeply in this disappointment; and while no pledge can be given at this moment, it is certainly my hope to reintroduce an Education Bill next session, which I trust may pass into law.
§ MR. GULLAND
Is it proposed to enact any of the provisions of the Bill by a minute of the Education Department?
