HC Deb 28 February 1888 vol 322 c1647
DR. R. MACDONALD (Ross and Cromarty)

asked the Lord Advocate, If men holding more than one croft of the aggregate rental of £4 and upwards per annum in Gairloch, and elsewhere in the Highlands, are precluded from voting in School Board elections, because the rent of any one of their holdings does not come up to £4 per annum?

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

This is purely a legal Question. I refer the hon. Member to Section 12, Sub-section 2, of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1872, for a statement of the qualification for electors on School Board elections.
