§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland, in view of the statement! contained in the last report of the medical officer of health for Ross and Cromarty in regard to the necessity for a suitable supply of pure water for the public schools, will he state how many of the 135 public schools in Ross-shire have a water supply laid on to the premises.
MR. A. GRAHAM MURRAY
I have not details as to how each school in Ross-shire is supplied with water, but out of the fifty-three schools on the mainland as to which I have information thirteen have water laid on; the remaining forty are supplied from an adjoining well or stream. In Lewis almost every school has the supply laid on.
