21. EARL of RONALDSHAY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he can give the figures showing the proportion of passes to candidates in the various university examinations, in continuation of the figures given in paragraph 98 of the Fifth Quinquennial Review of the Progress of Education in India [Cd. 4635]?
§ Sir G. SCOTT ROBERTSON
Before the hon. Gentleman replies, may I ask how or why the Noble Lord has received in advance a copy of this Quinquennial Report which other Members of the House have not been able to get?
I think I can reply to that. I do not think the Noble Lord has received the Report; he has received the Fifth, not the Sixth. The Noble Lord will find a statistical statement on the subject in the Sixh Quinquennial Review of the Progress of Education in India, which will shortly be in the hands of Members.
EARL of RONALDSHAY
If the Quinquennial Report has not yet been published, cannot the hon. Gentleman give me an answer to my question before it is published?
I can give the Noble Lord the figures, and shall be glad to do so, but they are not strictly in continuation of the figures in the last Report.
