§ Mr. BARNES
asked the Lord Advocate if the question of increase of pay to the police force of Glasgow, which has been agreed to by the Glasgow Town Council, has yet received the consideration of the Scotch Office; and, if so, when a reply will be forwarded to those immediately concerned?
§ The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. Ure)
The question referred to by the hon. Member is at present under consideration by the Scottish Office, and the Secretary for Scotland hopes shortly to be able to intimate a decision.
