§ Mr. WILLIAM THORNE
asked the Secretary for Scotland what has been the result of the inquiry into the charge made against the assistant schoolmaster in the Inverurie Academy higher grade public school in consequence of a breach of Section 68 of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1872?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
As a result of my inquiry, I am satisfied that the infringement of Section 68 of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1872, has not been of a very serious character. The attention of the School Board has been drawn to the necessity for strict compliance with the terms of that Section, and I hope that no further irregularity will be allowed to occur.
