§ 25. Mr. STURROCK
asked the Prime Minister whether he is taking steps to secure the election to this House of at least one of the two Scottish Law Officers?
§ Sir H. CRAIK
On a point of Order. May I, Mr. Speaker, call you attention to the phraseology of the question, which seems to imply that the representation of constituencies in this matter is a thing which may be secured in the direction of preference to Ministers?
§ Mr. STURROCK
In view of the vacancy in the Kelvingrove Division of Glasgow, has any effort been made to nominate one of the Scottish Law Officers?
§ Mr. CLYNES
I understand the work is being done, and, therefore, the proper rate of wages is being paid. The reply to the first supplementary question is in the negative.
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
Have the Government no generous followers in Scotland who would gladly surrender their seats, and whose departure they would have the fortitude to survive?
28. Captain TUDOR REES
asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to fix a limit of time within which Ministers at present without seats in this House must either be returned as Members or vacate their respective offices?
§ Mr. CLYNES
No such time limit could be imposed without legislation, which the Government at present do not propose to bring before the House.
§ Sir K. WOOD
Is it intended to continue the full remuneration of Minister, whether or not they are able to attend the 890 House; do not the salaries include their attendance?
