HC Deb 08 July 1907 vol 177 cc1166-7

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that, in defiance of the opinion expressed by the Local Government Board for Scotland that it was not possible for the duties attaching to the office of chief district medical officer in the Island of Lewis to be discharged by anyone resident in Dingwall, the Lewis District Committee, at their meeting on the 26th ult., appointed a medical officer who is resident at Dingwall; and will steps be taken to see that the Board's views on the subject are not overridden by the local authority. † See (4) Debates, clxx., 1268.


I am aware that the facts are as stated, and the Board are considering what steps should be taken.
