§ DR. CAMERON (Glasgow, College)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether in filling up the vacant highly-paid office of Sheriff Clerk of Ayrshire, care will be taken that the person appointed shall not only discharge the duties of the office in 1267 person, but shall be prohibited from engaging in any other business?
*THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. P. B. BOBERTSON,) Bute
In recent cases of filling up appointments of the importance of the one referred to in this question the points mentioned by the hon. Member have been given effect to. As regards this particular office, which has just fallen vacant, it would be premature for me to say more than that these points will receive the usual careful consideration.
