HC Deb 17 March 1926 vol 193 c454W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs how many agricultural training scholarships have been awarded by the fellowship of the British Empire Exhibition in consequence of their arrangement with the Government of Ontario during the last two years; the value of these scholarships; and whether the British Empire Exhibition authorities are experiencing any difficulty in securing applications for the scholarships?


I understand that the Government of Ontario have invited the Fellowship of the British Empire Exhibition to endow 10 scholarships valued at £80 each, at the Kemptville Agricultural School. This invitation has been accepted, and I have arranged to co-operate under the Empire Settlement Act. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
