HC Deb 06 December 1968 vol 774 c591W
Mr. Buchanan-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that payment to suppliers of furnishings in the new teacher training college in Aberdeen is not to be made till April, 1969; if he will investigate why this situation has arisen; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

Because of a misunderstanding, in one case payment was subject to a short delay but has since been made. The governing body assure me that in accordance with normal practice accounts will be settled as they are presented.
