§ SIR ROBERT ANSTRUTHER
asked the Lord Advocate, Whether provision will be made for remunerating the parochial collectors of Scotland for the additional labour imposed upon them by the Scottish Education Act of collecting the school rates in each parish?
THE LORD ADVOCATE
The Education (Scotland) Act of 1872 does not contain any provision for the remuneration of the collectors appointed by the parochial boards, who have also to collect the school rates. It is, therefore, a matter for the determination of the parochial boards whether additional remuneration should be given to their collectors in respect of the new duty put upon them by the Education Act.
