HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1628W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the growing importance of the town of Stornoway, and the increasing duties of the sheriff clerk depute there, he will consider the desirability of making this appointment a whole-time one?


The view taken by the Blackburn Committee was that the post of sheriff clerk depute at Stornaway, and other similar posts, might well be held on an unrestricted basis in future, and this view was accepted by the Departments concerned. The decision will be subject to review from time to time as circumstances may require, and as regards the existing depute, the arrangements to be made will be considered in the light of all relevant facts, including the volume of work.
