HC Deb 02 August 1935 vol 304 c3002W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can state the total amount of expenses incurred by Greenock corporation in the recent inquiry into the alleged overpayments by the Greenock public assistance committee; and the names of the particular individuals to whom the sums are due and the amounts in each case?


As regards the cost of the inquiry payable by the Corporation under Section 93 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1889, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply to his question on this subject on Wednesday last. I have no information as to other expenditure which may have been incurred by parties to the inquiry.
