§ 76. Mr. MacINTYRE
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that within recent months a number of serious crimes have been committed in the neighbourhood of Railsbrough, Uesting, Shetland, and that the local police have failed to discover the perpetrators of these crimes; and whether he will take 32 steps to reorganise and improve the, administration of the police force in Shetland?
§ The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Sir John Gilmour)
I have received a representation with reference to the action of the police in the matter referred to, and am in communication with the Standing Joint Committee of Zetland. I will communicate further with my hon. Friend. The question of bringing Zetland under the general Acts relating to the police in Scotland is now under consideration.
§ Mr. MacINTYRE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Procurator Fiscal is now a man of 80 years of age, and unfit for his work?
§ Sir R. HAMILTON
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers that question, is he aware that the Procurator Fiscal has done his work to the utmost satisfaction for a great number of years?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is it usual to attack an official like the Procurator Fiscal in this House by question and answer?
