HC Deb 16 March 1948 vol 448 cc1876-7
46. Mr. Cook

asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the setting up of a Royal Commission to investigate the growing and changing requirements in the content and administration of university education in Scotland.

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. On the information before me, I am not satisfied that this step is necessary, or desirable.

Mr. Cook

Is my right hon. Friend aware that a great many young people have to attend school three years after they have taken the higher leaving certificate to qualify for the university? Is it not certain that there are places which could be made available to them, if the administration were looked at?

The Prime Minister

That may be so, but it hardly calls for a Royal Commission.
