§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate whether he is aware that the medical officer of health for Ross and Cromarty in his last report directs special attention to the necessity for a suitable supply of pure water for the public schools; and, seeing that out of fifty-three schools on the mainland of Ross-shire only thirteen have water laid on to the premises, will he consider the expediency of taking such steps as may be necessary to secure a suitable supply for the remaining forty schools.
THE LORD-ADVOCATE (Mr. SCOTT DICKSON, Glasgow, Bridgton)
The Local Government Board have this question fully in view, and have been in communication with the school boards through the local authorities concerned. The results are so far satisfactory and the matter will be further pressed.
