HC Deb 13 March 1912 vol 35 cc1091-2

asked the Secretary for Scotland, whether Scotland's share of the sum available for the erection of sanatoria under Section 64 of the National Insurance Act will be apportioned strictly according to the population of different areas; and whether he can give an assurance that necessitous districts in the Highland and Islands will not be allowed to suffer owing to the sparseness of their population?

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)

The matter is now under the consideration of the Local Government Board for Scotland, in view of the terms of the section referred to, and my hon. Friend may rest assured that the varying circumstances and conditions of different localities in Scotland will not be overlooked.
