§ 87. Mr. WESTWOOD
asked the Secretary for Scotland if he is aware that education authorities and parish councils throughout Scotland desire the repeal of Section 37 of the Poor Law (Scotland) Act, 1845; and what action, if any, does he propose to take to give effect to the desire of the foregoing public bodies?
The repeal of Section 37 of the Poor Law (Scotland) Act, 1845, is one of several recommendations made by the recent Departmental Committee on Local Taxation, presided over by Lord Dunedin, after hearing representative evidence from local rating authorities. The matter will fall to be dealt with in any measure for the reform of the rating system in Scotland.
