§ DR. CLARK (Caithness)
asked the Lord Advocate, Whether it is the case that the Procurator Fiscalship of Orkney is vacant; and, whether, in filling up the vacancy, he will take steps to secure 1663 that an officer is appointed who will devote his whole time to the work, and not practice as a land agent or solicitor in the district?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. P. B. ROBERTSON) (Bute)
There is vacancy in the Procurator Fiscalship of Orkney. The appointment rests with the Sheriff, but requires approval by the Secretary for Scotland. The point to which the hon. Member directs attention will have due consideration.
