§ MR. A. R. D. ELLIOT
asked the Secretary to the Local Government Board, Whether there is at present in Scotland any Inspector of Rivers under "The Rivers Pollution Prevention Act, 1876;" and, if not, when it is intended to appoint one?
THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR),
in reply, said there had been an Inspector of Rivers; but he understood his appointment was not to be renewed. The proper method of making the inspection of rivers in Scotland was at present under consideration.
