§ MR. BAXTER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If he can now state what arrangements have been made for sending down Commissioners to inquire as to the best site 768 returned as uncertified is afterwards duly certified. There is no annual return of uncertified deaths; but I understand that the Registrar General some time ago decided that it was desirable to have one. In the second place, there is a considerable number of deaths with respect to which trustworthy information is obtained, though they are not certified by qualified practitioners; for example, the large number of poor patients who are attended to in dispensaries or for a harbour of refuge on the northeast coast of Scotland?
THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR)
Sir, my right hon. Friend has asked me to say that arrangements are in progress, and are almost completed, for sending down Commissioners.
