§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
asked the Secretary for Scotland if the price of £3,270 17s., which the Cathcart school board paid to. the Pollock estate, was only for the site or if it included payment for the construction of 148 yards of street, the fencing, planting, and maintenance of an additional area of ground, and the preservation of the river bank; if the school board took over an option for the site already obtained from the estate by a third party; if the school board ever asked the estate for any other or cheaper site; and how many yards of street the school board had to construct themselves?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
In reply to a question by the hon. Member for Dulwich on 17th instant, I gave the particulars which were supplied by the school board when applying for sanction to a loan. I have no other official information on the subject.
