§ MR. WILLIAM WHITELAW (Perth)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that the Medical Officer of Ayr Prison was appointed to that post at a salary of £80 in 1892, but on drawing his pay found that it had been reduced, and that, on the representation of the Visiting Committee, the Secretary for Scotland ordered the full salary of £80 to be paid according to the original terms; and can he state what salary the medical officer now enjoys?
§ SIR GEORGE TREVELYAN
The Medical Officer of Ayr Prison was appointed to that post on the 15th March 1892, at a salary of £70 per annum, the sum fixed by the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury for the office, and on the 17th March he accepted the appointment "at the reduced salary of £70 per annum." He now receives this sum.
