December, 1929, and the corresponding figures for 1928?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The following table shows the total weight of hay and of straw imported into Great Britain and Northern Ireland registered daring each of the months of October, November and December, 1928 and 1929:
yet in a position to announce his decision with regard to the appointment of a residential surgeon for the Bignold and Dunbar hospitals in Caithness?
Mr. W. ADAMSON
The question of assistance from the Highlands and Islands (Medical Service) Fund towards the appointment of a surgeon in Caithness was brought before the Department of Health for Scotland some time ago by the managers of the Dunbar Hospital, but, in the absence of any indication from the managers of the Bignold Hospital that they desire such an appointment, the Department, have not yet been able to deal with the matter. I can assure the hon. Baronet that any application that has the support of both bodies will receive the sympathetic consideration of the Department.
