§ Mr. AINSWORTH
asked the Lord Advocate what steps the Scottish Office propose to take with reference to the Report of the Departmental Committee of the Congested Districts (Scotland) Board; and whether they will consider the advisability of bringing the Board up to the level of the Irish Board and of extending its authority over the whole of the Highland counties?
§ Mr. URE
The report in question is now being considered, and attention given to the question of extension of area. But some time must elapse before any announcement can be made.
