HC Deb 06 July 1915 vol 73 c196
17. Mr. MORTON

asked the Lord Advocate whether it is contemplated to appoint a Depute-fiscal at Dunblane; and, if so; will he see that the party appointed confines himself to the duties of the office and does not engage in private practice?

18. Mr. WATT

asked whether, in view of the fact that the post of Procurator-fiscal at Dunblane is to be conjoined with that at Perth, it is proposed to appoint a Depute-fiscal at Dunblane; and whether he is aware that, if such an appointment should be made, there is a local feeling that the man appointed should be confined to the duties of his public office?


In reply to these questions, I refer to the answer given by me on this subject yesterday. For the reasons then stated, the questions now asked are primarily for the consideration of the Procurator-fiscal. I am unaware of the existence of the local feeling referred to by my hon. and learned Friend.
