§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he will lay upon the Table of the House the recent report by Dr. Dittmar, the medical inspector for Scotland, on the general sanitary condition of the burgh of Cromarty; and will he consider the expediency of directing the medical inspector to prepare a similar report in regard to the burgh of Stornoway.
§ MR. SINCLAIR
The report on Cromarty is not, I am advised, of sufficient general interest to justify its being printed as a Parliamentary Paper. The Local Government Board for Scotland have not received any complaints which would lead them to suppose that there is any urgent or exceptional reason for instituting an immediate medical inspection of Stornoway, which will be over taken by the medical inspector in due course.
