HC Deb 14 July 1914 vol 64 cc1723-4W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the encouragement which is being given to the veterinary profession in England by means of Scholarships, he will provide similar scholarships to students attending Scottish universities?


It is presumed that the hon. Member is referring to the veterinary scholarships and veterinary research scholarships which are offered by the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries. These scholarships are not confined to English candidates, but are open, the former to honours graduates in science of any British university, and the latter to students who have secured the diploma of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Nomination forms for these scholarships have been distributed to the Scottish universities and agricultural and veterinary colleges.
