HC Deb 13 September 1887 vol 321 cc487-8
MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether he would direct the special attention of the Procurators Fiscal to the provisions of the Truck Act, with a view to their being properly carried out?

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

It is not, as a general rule, necessary to call the special attention of Procurators Fiscal to their duties. I shall, however, be issuing a Circular in connection with the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act, and I shall be very glad to call their attention in the Circular to the provisions of the Truck Act.
