§ MR. WATT (Glasgow, College)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he is aware that the salaries of several professors of Scottish universities are paid out of Parliamentary grants, and that these professors are subject to religious tests before being appointed; and whether he will introduce legislation making these public appointments of teachers open to all, irrespective of the Church to which the applicants belong.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
My hon. friend was good enough to draw my attention to this subject last session; but I am not able to give any undertaking as to legislation.
