§ 29. Mr. WESTWOOD
asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health how many miners in Scotland at present incapacitated for work owing to injuries received in the course of their employment are in receipt of parish relief on account of their being so incapacitated?
§ The SOLICITOR-GENERAL for SCOTLAND
I regret that the information asked for is not available. It could only be obtained by calling for special returns from parish councils, and under present circumstances my Noble Friend does not feel justified in adding to the already heavy pressure of work falling upon these authorities.
§ Mr. HARDIE
Are not the returns for accidents already available so that there is no question of not being able to obtain the materials necessary to give information asked for?
