§ 46. Mr. LEONARD
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the report of Sheriff Dickson, K.C., concerning the alleged over-payments to unemployed persons in Greenock will soon be issued; and what decision he has come to in the matter?
§ Mr. SKELTON
My right hon. Friend hopes within the next few days to issue a determination on the question of the legality of the payments dealt with in the report to which the hon. Member refers. It is not the practice to publish such reports.
§ Mr. NEIL MACLEAN
Will the hon. Gentleman withhold his decision until Parliament reassembles, so that it will be possible to have the matter raised on the Floor of the House?
