HC Deb 31 January 1956 vol 548 c96W
Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the impending retirement of the Deputy Chairman of the White Fish Authority.

Mr. J. Stuart

Yes. Captain J. S. Allan, Deputy Chairman of the White Fish Authority and Chairman of the Authority's Committee for Scotland and Northern Ireland, has asked to be relieved of his duties owing to other commitments. Captain Allan has rendered outstanding service to the Authority and the Committee, and my right hon. Friends and I have accepted his resignation with regret. I am glad to say that Sir John Ure Primrose, formerly Lord Provost of Perth, has agreed to accept appointment in place of Captain Allan from 15th February. I think we are fortunate in securing so distinguished a successor to Captain Allan in his arduous responsibilities.
