§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."—(Mr. Jackson.)
§ DR. CLARK (Caithness)
asked, whether the Government would not consent to postpone the second reading of this Bill until the Autumn Session, as it was desirable the policy of the Scotch Education Commissioners should be discussed? Every one of the schemes of the Commissioners had been opposed in that House by a majority of the Scottish Members.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
said, that the hon. Member would have a full opportunity of raising the question upon the Scotch Education Vote during the Autumn Session.
§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
thought that the various Irish measures which the Bill proposed to continue ought to be discussed before the Bill was read a second time.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
