§ 17. Mr. Simpson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the proceedings of a sub-committee of the Wigtown education committee, held at Stranraer on 6th January, 1938, where the convener of the committee was reported as the purchaser of a hut belonging to the authority; and whether he is satisfied as to the price and circumstances of the transaction generally?
§ Mr. Elliot
I am informed that the transaction referred to has not been proceeded with and that the county council have now authorised their architect to advertise the hut for sale and to accept the best price obtainable.
