HC Deb 09 November 1962 vol 666 cc108-9W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in the light of the Report of the Annan Committee on the Teaching of Russian, he will finance a Chair of Russian at at least one Scottish university.

Mr. Noble

The recommendations of the Annan Committee are primarily concerned with the teaching of Russian in schools and establishments of further education, but in any event the founding of chairs is a matter for the Universities themselves.
