HC Deb 24 June 1903 vol 124 c375
MR. JOHN DEWAR (Inverness)

To ask the Lord Advocate whether, in view of the inconvenience which arises in parishes in the congested districts of Scotland from the difficulty of obtaining suitable accommodation for parish medical officers, he will take steps to amend the Local Government (Scotland) Act so as to permit parish councils to provide suitable accommodation and to give them powers to borrow money for this purpose.

(Answered by Mr. A. Graham Murray.) The Secretary for Scotland can give no undertaking as to the introduction of a Bill to amend the Local Government (Scotland) Act in the sense desired by the hon. Member, but the matter referred to by him will receive due consideration.
