HC Deb 23 November 1937 vol 329 c1062W
Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has considered a circular or letter, issued by the Master Painters' Association, sent to him by the honourable Member for Maryhill, indicating that the building and allied industries have a separate committee to assist the Glasgow progressive party during municipal elections; and whether he will inquire into the legality of this expenditure by this committee under the law relating to corrupt practices?

Mr. Elliot

I have passed a copy of this letter to the Lord Advocate for investigation of the question whether any offence has been committed.
