MR. PHILIPPS (Lanark, Mid)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, with regard to certain charges made against the managers of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic School at Blantyre, of having diverted certain money derived from public grants to other than educational purposes, into which the Education Department held a thorough investigation, the result of their inquiry 538 has been that the charges have been completely disproved?
§ * THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. P. B. ROBERTSON, Bute)
The charges brought against the managers of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic School related to the alleged incorrectness of the Returns of income and expenditure furnished by them. The matter was the subject of careful investigation, and the managers were asked to produce accounts and vouchers. The examination of these led to the conclusion that there was no case calling for their Lordships' further interference.
