§ MR. WALLACE (Edinburgh, E.)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Report of the Committee appointed to inquire into the grievances of the prisons staff in Scotland is receiving the consideration of the Secretary for Scotland and the Treasury, with a view to an early settlement; and whether the Report will be laid upon the Table of the House?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Sir C. J. PEARSON,) Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities
The Report referred to in the question is still under the consideration of the Secretary for Scotland, who hopes shortly to be in a position to make proposals to the Treasury; and as regards the latter part, I must refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on the 16th instant, when I said that it is not intended to lay the Report on the Table, as it is not thought that such a course would be of public benefit.
