HC Deb 01 April 1887 vol 313 cc227-8
MR. ESSLEMONT (Aberdeen, E.)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether his attention has been directed to the unsatisfactory tenure and condition of many fishermen's dwellings on the North-East Coast; and, if he can say whether the Government intend to deal with the question in connection with a Local Government Bill, by an extension of the Agricultural Holdings Act, or otherwise, during the present Session of Parliament?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities)

, in reply, said, he had received no Notice of the Question before he saw it on the Paper. He must, therefore, ask the hon. Gentleman to postpone it for a day or two.
