HC Deb 19 June 1888 vol 327 c583

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether it is a fact that the Sheriff Clerk Depute has been removed from Tobermory to Oban, and has taken with him all the ordinary business, or processes in existence, or connected with the Crofting Registry; and, if this is correct, whether he will direct such business to be returned to Tobermory?

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

The Sheriff Clerk Depute who was formerly at Tobermory is now removed to Oban, which is to be the seat of the Court for the district; but there will be a Sheriff Clerk Depute at Tobermory, and I shall make inquiry as to the arrangements to be made to prevent any avoidable inconvenience in consequence of the change.
