§ Mr. LYNCH
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the extension of higher education in neighbouring countries of recent years, and also in view of the vastness of the industrial results which have had their origin in scientific research, he will consider what means can be taken to give a stimulus to scientific research in this country; and whether, in particular, he will raise the office of the President of the Board of Education to the level of importance of that of any other great Department of State?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Government always have in view the objects advocated by the hon. Member. I do not see how they would be promoted by the suggestion made in the second part of his question.
