41. Mr. McGovern

asked the Lord Advocate the name and address of the debt collector in the East End of Glasgow who has been arrested; the nature of the charge against him; whether he has been liberated on bail; the amount of bail; and the date of his trial?

The Lord Advocate (Mr. T. M. Cooper)

James Turkington, carrying on business as a debt collector at 1086, Gallowgate, Glasgow, was arrested on 4th instant on charges of subornation of perjury, perjury, and fraud, and was subsequently liberated on £100 bail. The date of the trial has not yet been fixed.

Mr. McGovern

Is it the case that when this man was arrested a large number of people were there and cheered the arrest; and can the Lord Advocate give the reasons for the cheering?
