§ 6. Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will consider the desirability of reaching an early decision as to whether legislation is to be introduced to continue the existence of the Scottish Education Endowments Commission after the end of this year?
§ Mr. SKELTON
Yes, Sir, my right hon. Friend is considering the desirability of reaching an early decision on the matter referred to in the question.
§ Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
In considering this matter, will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind the widespread and deep-seated dissatisfaction existing in Scotland regarding many of the schemes submitted?
§ Sir IAN MACPHERSON
Will he also bear in mind that this Commission has outraged Scottish sentiment and that the sooner it ends its inglorious career the better?
§ Sir MURDOCH McKENZIE WOOD
Can the hon. Gentleman say what proportion of its work this Commission has carried out?
