HC Deb 25 May 1905 vol 146 c1379

To ask the Lord-Advocate whether the local authority for the parish of Barvas, Island of Lewis, has submitted to the Local Government Board a detailed report by Dr. Ross, the medical officer of health for the parish, setting forth particulars of the defective water supply and other sanitary defects in seven public schools within the parish; and, in view of the fact that the health of the children attending these schools is endangered, will he state what action it is proposed to take in the matter.

(Answered by Mr. Scott Dickson.) The Secretary for Scotland is not satisfied that the information before him enables him to give a complete Answer to the hon. Member's Question. He is consulting with the Local Government Board, and will communicate further with the hon. Member.
