§ Mr. ALDEN
asked the President of the Board of Education the number of universities and colleges in which Russian is being taught; and whether he can state the number of Englishmen who are capable of speaking Russian, and how far this applies to the Consuls and commercial agents who have been or are being sent to Russia?
§ Mr. HERBERT FISHER
According to the latest information in the Board's possession, instruction in Russian is provided in nine universities and one university college in England. I have no information as to the last two parts of the question.
