HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1917W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Undersecretary of State for India whether the Senate of Madras University has resolved upon certain proposals which in fact will compel students to take up Sanskrit, or other classical languages, to the neglect of the Indian vernaculars?


The Secretary of State has no official information on the subject, but he understands from the newspapers that the proposals in question do not compel students to take up a classical instead of a vernacular language, but merely give them the option of doing so.
