§ Captain W. BENN
asked the Secretary for Scotland (1) whether there is any statutory obligation requiring the new greater Edinburgh authority to give terms as good to its employés in Leith as were given by the Leith Town Council;
(2) whether the Edinburgh Town Council is dismissing employés of the late Leith Town Council; and whether he has any power under the Edinburgh Boundaries Act to make an Order in respect to this matter?
§ Mr. MUNRO
The conditions under which employés of the late Leith1532W Town Council may continue in the service of the Town Council of Edinburgh are set out in Part V of the Edinburgh Boundaries Extension and Tramways Act, 1920, to which I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend. I have no information as to whether the Town Council of Edinburgh is dismissing employés of the late Leith Town Council. I have no power to intervene in the matter.
