§ MR. WATT (Glasgow, College)
I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate if the most recently appointed Judge of the Court of Session occupies the position of ordinary director of the Bank of Scotland; and, if so, whether, seeing that the Bank of Scotland is frequently a litigant in that Court, he proposes to take any action.
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. THOMAS SHAW,) Hawick Burghs
Lord Skerrington was a director of the Bank of Scotland, but upon receiving His Majesty's Commission as a Judge he promptly, and before taking his seat on the Bench, resigned his directorship.
§ MR. THOMAS SHAW
I see no necessity for humility on the part of the hon. Member. Lord Skerrington acted entirely on his own initiative.
