To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland following receipt of the proposals from the governors of Newbattle Abbey college to the Scottish Education Department meeting the points raised by the Secretary of State when he withdrew grant aid to that college last year, whether he is now in a position to announce his intention to restore grant aid to the college.
