MR. T. SHAW (Hawick Burghs)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate when the Report of the Committee of Council on Scottish Education for the past year, together with relative Return of school expenditure, statistics, etc., will be printed and circulated among Members?
MR. GRAHAM MURRAY
The statistical tables have already been laid on the Table, and their distribution rests with the printers. The Report of the Committee of Council is in course of preparation, but it is not possible to comment upon some matters to which it is undesirable to refer until a somewhat later date. All the essential information is given in the statistical tables.
