§ MR. WATT (Glasgow, College)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been called to the unanimous recommendation of the Convention of Royal Burghs of Scotland that private slaughter-houses should be abolished and public abattoirs substituted; and if he will take steps, in view of that recommendation, to carry out the suggestion.
§ MR. THOMAS SHAW
When the inquiry now in progress is completed the recommendation referred to by my hon. friend will receive careful consideration.
