§ Mr. ROBERT HARCOURT
asked the Lord Advocate whether he is aware that an inquiry has been held into the circumstances of the death of A. Findlay, in 1272W Forfar; and on what ground access to the Report is refused to the representatives of the deceased.
§ Mr. URE
I am aware that an inquiry was made into the circumstances of the death of A. Findlay, of Forfar, and a Report obtained. That Report is an official document and according to established practice the invariable rule has been, and is, that all such Reports are confidential documents and are not available for other than official purposes.
