HC Deb 21 February 1888 vol 322 c999

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether it is true that Her Majesty's Government are about to change the residence of the Sheriff Substitute of Sutherland from Tain to Golspie, and the Sheriff Court from Dornoch to Golspie; and, if so, whether he is aware that there is a strong feeling on the part of the people of Dornoch and district against the change?

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

in reply, said, this matter had not yet been disposed of, but was receiving careful consideration. A Memorial against the proposal had been received from the people of Dornoch, and Memorials from other quarters in its favour.
