HC Deb 01 March 1900 vol 79 c1448
MR. CROMBIE () Kincardineshire

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Local Government Board has, under Section 30 (7) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1894, prescribed rules as to the publication of accounts; and, if so, whether they enforce the publication of a list of paupers, the relief given to each, and the salaries of poor law officers.


The Local Government Board have not prescribed rules under the section referred to. That section, however, deals only with parish trusts, and could not authorise rules requiring publication of the items specified in the question.
