§ MR. HUGH ELLIOT (Ayrshire, N.)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, having regard to the fact that police burghs do not fall under the administration of County Councils, it is intended to give them a share of the residue grant provided by the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Duties Bill; and, if so, in what manner it is proposed to allocate the grant?
§ * MR. J. P. B. ROBERTSON
My hon. Friend was good enough to direct my attention to the position of police burghs in regard to this grant, and he will see from the Notice Paper that the Amendment of my right hon. Friend is altered in such a manner as to give effect to his representation.
