FINANCIAL MEMORANDUM.

The main object of the Bill is to set up an Executive Commission of seven members, with powers to review the educational endowments of Scotland and to frame schemes for the better application of these endowments. The legislative and administrative developments of the last five and twenty years have made such a review a matter of urgency if the monies available are to be put to the best possible use. All ordinary educational endowments of a date earlier than 31st December 1920, may be dealt with by the Commissioners at their own hand. Later foundations and certain endowments of a special character (University endowments, theological endowments, and the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland) are excluded from the purview of the Commission, unless the trustees concerned make special application for their admission.

The procedure to be followed in framing and approving schemes is strictly modelled upon the precedent furnished by the Educational Endowments (Scotland) Act, 1882.

The powers of the Commissioners will expire on 31st December 1931, unless extended by Parliament. The desirability of making permanent provision for the recasting of schemes was emphasised by the Departmental Committee, which pointed out that this might be done either by making the Commission a permanent one or by putting the Scottish Education Department in a position analogous to that now occupied in England by the Board of Education, to whom Parliament in 1899 transferred the powers and duties of the Charity Commissioners, so far as educational charities are concerned. The number of endowments in Scotland seems to be too small to justify the expense that would be involved by the adoption of the first alternative. Accordingly the
