Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that a civilian instructor has been appointed to instruct the inmates at Polmont Borstal institution in acetylene welding; whether he will give the daily number of hours' instruction given and the salary attached to the position; and whether this instructor receives an allowance for house rent, subsistence and travelling expenses?

Mr. Elliot

A civilian instructor has been appointed on a temporary basis to give instruction in electric welding to suitable lads at Polmont Borstal Institution. Instruction is given for approximately seven hours daily and the instructor receives pay of £6 a week, plus the cost of a season ticket from Glasgow, where he lives. No separate allowance is made for house rent or subsistence.
