89. Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that £600,000, to which Scotland contributed, has been handed over by the National Relief Fund and the Queen's Work for Women Fund for the training of professional women whose prospects have been injured by the War; that this fund is at present being administered by the Central Committee on Women's Employment and Training in London, with the assistance of interviewing boards throughout the country; and whether, in view of the different educational conditions obtaining in Scotland, he will take such steps as will secure the setting up of a separate Scottish Committee with power to deal with Scottish applications
§ Mr. MUNRO
The answers to the first two parts of the question are in the affirmative, except that the amount in question is £500,000, and not £600,000. The funds at the disposal of the Central Committee were granted by the Executive Committee of the National Relief Fund and are not under my control.
