§ MR. LENG
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether Police Burghs in Scotland, as recognised under Section 2, Sub-section (iii.), (b.), of "The Local 1375 Taxation, Customs, and Excise Act, 1890," will receive directly their share of all grants under the Budget arrangements of the present year, without passing through the hands of County Councils or any other channel except the Treasury or the Scotch Department?
§ MR. J. P. B. ROBERTSON
This is a point which cannot be determined apart from the question as to the purposes to which the money shall be applied; but it will be duly considered in that connection.
