HC Deb 03 December 1912 vol 44 c2087
67. Mr. HOGGE

asked whether the Elgin Commission, in their Report on the Scottish universities, definitely recommended limiting grants to these universities on condition of adopting the inclusive fee system, or whether they definitely abstained from recommending or criticising the institution of a composite fee?


I would refer the bon. Member to paragraph 11 of the Report of the Committee, in which the position of the Committee is set forth.


Is it not the case that the Commission deliberately stated that they were not prepared to give a definite deliverance on this question, and left it to the authorities of the university?


They mentioned the undoubted advantages which they thought would be secured by this system, but they said it was not part of their reference to recommend it.
