HC Deb 23 March 1927 vol 204 c375
53. Mr. MAXTON

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that out of 17 secondary schools in Glasgow only four are non-fee paying; that the Glasgow Education. Authority are proposing to impose fees in Shawlands Academy, which has been for many years a non-fee-paying school; and if he will regard three non-fee-paying secondary schools in Glasgow as satisfying the conditions of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1918?

The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOT-LAND (Sir John Gilmour)

The Department have addressed a communication to the Glasgow Education Authority regarding a proposal to charge fees at Shaw-lands Academy, and now await the Authority's reply. Until that has been received and considered, it is not possible for me to express any opinion on the questions involved.
