§ SIR CHARLES PEARSON (Edinburgh and St. Andrews University)
In the absence of the hon. Member for Glasgow and Aberdeen University, I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, under the Sea Fisheries Regulation (Scotland) Bill, the present staff of the Fishery Board, in so far as they are members of the Civil Service, will be secured in their rights and privileges as such members, notwithstanding the transference of their service to the new Fishery Board?
§ SIR G. TREVELYAN
The Government have no intention of interfering with the rights and privileges of the staff of the Board, and will further secure these, if necessary, by Amendments on the Bill.
