HC Deb 01 April 1895 vol 32 cc603-4
MR. W. J. MAXWELL (Dumfriesshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland who fixes the date of the first statutory meeting of a Landward Committee, and whose duty it is to summon the meeting; and, whether it is the Parish Council or the Landward Committee which appoints the representative on a District Committee in the case of a parish which comprises a police burgh or part thereof, and a parish which is partly landward and partly burghal, and which also comprises a police burgh or part thereof?


The first Statutory Meeting of a Landward Committee should be held upon the same day as the Statutory Meeting of the Parish Council, and should be summoned by the Inspector of Poor, just as in the case of the Parish Council. As regards the latter part of the question, it is the Parish Council which appoints in the first alternative put, and the Landward Committee in the second.
