HC Deb 31 May 1897 vol 49 c1618

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, as representing the Secretary for Scotland, whether, as in the last Report of the Local Government Board for Scotland allegations of a serious nature are stated to have been made against 15 inspectors of the poor, and that the Board was called upon to investigate eight charges against medical officers, he will state in what counties the inspectors of poor and medical officers were employed?


To supply the information requested would be an entire departure from ordinary practice, and would not, in the opinion of the Local Government Board, be to the interests of sound administration.
