HC Deb 18 February 1927 vol 202 cc1271-2W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that a petition, signed by 97 per cent. of the tradesmen and shopkeepers in the Broughty Ferry district of Dundee, recently petitioned the city council praying them to carry out The Dundee Boundaries Act, 1913, so far as its provisions concerned Broughty Ferry; that no arrangement has yet been made for fulfilment of those conditions; and whether he will, as now suggested by the petitioners, take any steps to facilitate implementing of the legal settlement made in 1913?


I have received a copy of the petition referred to in the question. The suggestion made in the second part of the question is not in accordance with the information which I have received from the Town Clerk. As regards the third part, I have no jurisdiction to intervene in the matter.
