§ 36. Mr. J. M. HENDERSON
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether it is proposed to found a National College of Agriculture for Scotland in the neighbourhood of Edinburgh; and, if so, has he considered what effect such a proposal will have upon the status of the existing agricultural colleges in Glasgow and Aberdeen?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
I am not aware of any such proposal, but I understand that the governors of the Edinburgh Agricultural College are considering a suggestion for the transference of that college from the city to the country. I do not know what their decision will be, but I do not see why it should affect the status of the other colleges to which my hon. Friend refers.
§ Sir H. CRAIK
Before any proposal is put forward that the students of Glasgow and Aberdeen Universities should go to Edinburgh, will the House have an opportunity of expressing an opinion upon it?
