§ SIR C. CAMERON (Glasgow, Bridgeton)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the law of Scotland as to the tenure of office by Poor Law medical officers differs from that of England; and whether he would consent to lay upon the Table a Return showing the instances in which since the coming into operation of the Local Government (Scotland) Act of 1894, Poor Law medical officers have been dismissed or compelled to resign in consequence of a too conscientious performance of their duties?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. GRAHAM MURRAY, Buteshire)
The reply to the first paragraph of the honourable Member's Question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, the Secretary for Scotland considers that it would not be possible to prepare a Return in the form proposed by the honourable Member.
