§ MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney, and Shetland)
To ask the Lord Advocate if his attention has been called to an advertisement for a poor law medical officer for the parish of Farr, Sutherlandshire; and whether such advertisement is in accord with the regulations of the Local Government Board.
(Answered by Mr. A. Graham Murray.) The attention of the Local Government Board has been called to the advertisement referred to, and they are in communication with the Parish Council of Farr. The Board have not made a formal regulation on the subject, but, when they find a Parish Council interfering with the fees charged by their medical officer in his private practice, they call upon them to cease doing so, and they have repeatedly taken this course.
