§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate, whether the invitation of the Congested Districts Board for Scotland to provide for the maintenance of twenty boys from the congested districts to be trained in seamanship at Liscard Institution, Liverpool, has been responded to; and, if so, will he state from what parishes applications have been received, and the number from each parish.
THE LORD-ADVOCATE (Mr. SCOTT DICKSON, Glasgow, Bridgton)
Up to the present no applications have been received. The Lews Local Committee, however, represent that sufficient time has not yet been given for due consideration of this scheme.
