MR. J. WILSON (Falkirk)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will lay upon the Table the statistics of the proceedings in sheriff courts in Scotland, under 519 the Workmen's Compensation Act, 1897, and the Employers' Liability Act, 1880, during, the year 1898?
§ SIR J. LENG (Dundee)
had the following Question on the sane subject: To ask the Lord Advocate, whether the Local Government Board in Scotland will present to Parliament a Report and statistics relating to, proceedings in sheriff courts in Scotland under the Workmen's Compensation Act, 1897, mid the Employers' Liability Act, 1880, during, the year 1898, corresponding to these issued by the Home Office for England nod Wales.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
I have arranged with the Secretary for Scotland that the statistics mentioned in the Question shall be collected. As soon as they are ready, I shall be glad to lay them on the Table. The honourable Member for Dundee will also, perhaps, accept this as an answer to the Question which he has addressed to the Lord Advocate.
