§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Secretary for Scotland has received memorials from certain parish councils in Scotland urging that parish councils should be represented on the boards of royal lunatic asylums, and that there should be a public audit of the accounts of these boards; and will he state what action it is proposed to take in the matter.
§ *THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. GRAHAM MURRAY,) Buteshire
The memorials referred to were received, and the Secretary for Scotland met a deputation, on which occasion the whole subject was fully discussed. To give effect to the proposals made in the question would require legislation, which it is not intended to propose at present.
