HC Deb 26 September 1944 vol 403 cc53-4W
Lieut.-Commander Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when it is proposed to introduce the Education (Scotland) Bill.

Mr. Johnston

I hope to be in a position to introduce the Education (Scotland) Bill towards the close of the present Session. I propose that this Bill should be given a First Reading only, so that before it is reintroduced next Session there will be an opportunity for full consideration and discussion of the Government's proposals by all parties interested. This will allow of any adjustment that is necessary being made in the terms of the Bill before it is reintroduced.
