§ SIR HENRY CRAIK (Glasgow and Aberdeen Universities)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he can now state the arrangements which are proposed for a grant to Scotland equivalent to the additional grant which is provided for England and Wales under the Education Bill.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
The additional grant referred to by the hon. Member has not yet been given to England and Wales, and therefore the question of an equivalent for Scotland does not arise, but due representation has been made to the Treasury as to the claims and needs of Scotland.
§ SIR HENRY CRAIK
asked what form the representation had taken, and if the right hon. Gentleman had borne in mind that the sum payable under the Education Bill might be very largely increased?
§ MR. SINCLAIR
said the matter had not yet taken definite form either in regard to England or Wales. The hon. Member might rest assured that proper representations would be made.
§ MR. GULLAND (Dumfries Burghs)
How can the Scottish Members make sure that Scotland will receive its proper share?
§ [No Answer was returned.]
