§ 87. Mr. WATT
asked the Lord Advocate whether any action has yet been taken by 532 his Department to deal with minor legal appointments; if so, will he say whether any of the reforms contemplated can be dealt with by administration without the necessity for legislation; and when it may be expected that his Department will deal administratively with these?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by me to my hon. Friends the Members for Wick Burghs and Ross and Cromarty on 1st August last. I can assure my hon. Friend that the matters to which he refers have not escaped my attention.
