§ MR. ANGUS SUTHERLAND (Sutherland)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate from what date the increase of salary to the officers of the Fishery Board for Scotland, recently intimated by him, will take effect; and upon what principle the officers are in future to be divided into first and second class?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. P. B. ROBERTSON,) Bute
In reply to the first part of the question, I have to inform the hon. Member that increase of pay is-to date from the 1st instant; and, in reply to the latter part, that the principle on which it is proposed to distinguish the first from the second class of officers is that the former will be composed of those who perform more arduous or more important duties.
