§ Mr. PIRIE
asked the Lord Advocate if he can state the names of the officials of Scottish boards who have been called to London from Scotland on Government business during this Autumn Session, specifying the number of occasions and the number of days absent from their work in the case of each official?
§ Mr. URE
In connection with the National Insurance Bill the Vice-President and the medical member of the Scottish Local Government Board were in London during the Autumn Session; and one member, with the agricultural adviser, of the Congested Districts Board was in London in connection with the Scottish Landholders Bill. I am not in a position to state the precise number of days during which these officials were absent from Scotland, but while in London they were, of course, discharging official duty.
