HC Deb 09 July 1975 vol 895 c530
36. Mr. Monro

asked the Lord Advocate if he is satisfied with the Scottish system of pre-trial investigation of the cause of violent death.

The Lord Advocate

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Monro

May I congratulate the right hon. and learned Gentleman on his first satisfactory answer today? May I also suggest that he should have a meeting with the Lord Chancellor and impress upon him the fact that we have a satisfactory system in Scotland which does not involve the public allocation of blame upon persons yet to be charged with an offience?

The Lord Advocate

I think that I can again answer "Yes" to that question.
