HC Deb 07 June 1921 vol 142 c1672

asked the Secretary for Scotland if the whole cost of the polls under the Temperance (Scotland) Act, 1913, which were taken last year, falls on the local authorities; and, if not, how much is borne by the Exchequer?

The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. Morison)

The whole cost falls on the local authorities, that is, on county and town councils.
