§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate if he will state the conditions under which the Congested Districts Board for Scotland undertake to place girls from congested districts in the institution under the control of the Aberdeen Educational Trust for training in domestic service, and the number so placed.
MR. SCOTT DICKSON
In answer to the first part of the hon. Member's Question I may refer him to a letter from the Under-Secretary for Scotland to Major Matheson, chairman of the Lews (Balfour) Committee, a copy of which has been sent him. Twenty-one applications, including twelve from the Lews, have been received, but the Congested Districts Board do not get possession of the Home till Whit-Sunday.
