HC Deb 20 April 1937 vol 322 c1567
22. Mr. G. A. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is now in a position to make any statement about the application submitted by the four Scottish universities for a grant from the Education (Scotland) Fund?

Mr. Elliot

Yes, Sir. I have decided to appoint a committee in terms of Section 16 (1) (b) of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1908, to inquire into the application made by the University Courts of the Universities of Scotland for the payment from the Education (Scotland) Fund of sums in respect of yearly maintenance expenditure and to advise me as to the sums, if any, which should be paid to them. The chairman of the committee will be Lord Alness, and Sir Arthur Rose, Bart., and Sir George Macdonald will be the other members.
