§ SIR WILLIAM ANSON (Oxford University)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education, what compensation, if any, will be afforded to those students who have incurred expense and have deferred the commencement of their professional career with a view to qualifying for a place on Column B. of the Register, which is now to be abolished.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. BIRRELL,) Bristol,
The Board are prepared, on the abolition of the Register, to take steps to repay the fees paid by students for registration. The additional attainments obtained by students with a view to qualifying for a place on Column B. of the Register are, I should have thought, likely to be equally valuable to them in their professional career, even though the Register is abolished, and I do not consider that any compensation is due to them.
