MR. CATHCART WASON
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if, in view of the† See Page 851.1150 fact of the sums distributed by the Congested Districts Board, the attention of County Councils will be directed to the inexpediency of allowing their paid servants to act as political agents, returning officers, or taking an active part against any candidates.
§ *THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. GRAHAM MURRAY,) Buteshire
The reference by the hon. Member to the Congested Districts Board does not seem to have any bearing on the point referred to, and I have nothing to add to the answer given on the 9th instant to the hon. Member for Aberdeen.†
