6. Mr. WEDDERBURN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many organisations in Scotland have been approved by his Department under the provisions of Section 1 (1) of the Local Authorities (Publicity) Act, 1931; how many applications, and by whom, have 1663 been refused approval; and what is the general policy which he proposes to adopt in this matter?
Sir A. SINCLAIFI
One organisation—the Scottish Travel Association—has been approved. Application for approval was received from one other organisation—the Scottish National Development Council—but my predecessor in office was not satisfied from the information supplied to him that this body fulfilled the conditions prescribed by the Act. As regards the third part of the question, each application must be considered on its merits, and it is not possible to lay down any general policy.
