§ 27. Mr. WESTWOOD
asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland if he is aware that the Scottish Education Department have now issued a draft code for Scottish schools; if so, will copies of the same be made available for Members of Scottish constituencies; and when will the code be placed upon the Table for the approval of the House as stated on 18th April?
§ The SOLICITOR-GENERAL for SCOTLAND (Mr. F. C. Thomson)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The code will not be placed upon the Table for the approval of the House until reasonable time has been allowed for its preliminary consideration in draft by the education authorities and other bodies concerned; but, in the meantime, copies of the draft are available for Members for Scottish constituencies.
§ Mr. NICHOL
Is it not the case that in this draft code an attempt is being made practically to eliminate the intermediate school in Scotland?
