MR. CATHCART WASON
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been directed to the facts of Dr. Duncan's dismissal; that the reason given, viz, the refusal of Dr. Duncan to implement the agreement entered into by him with the parish council is incorrect; and that Dr. Duncan has been and is ready to carry out any arrangement or agreement entered into by him with the parish council; and if it is possible for him to take any action with the view of checking any injustice.
§ MR. SINCLAIR
I understand that the statement made in reply to my hon. friend's Question on 26th February, that Dr. Duncan failed to implement an agreement made with him three years ago to appoint an assistant, is correct, and that his recent offer to carry out this arrangement was held by the parish councils employing him to have come too late.
