§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will give the date when Mr. George Pottinger was suspended from duty and for what reason; whether this was on full or half pay; how much he has drawn in pay since his suspension; and when he is expected to resume his normal duties.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
I refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to his similar Question on 18th October. Since his suspension Mr. Pottinger has now received pay amounting to £3,020 gross. I see no prospect of his suspension being terminated while police inquiries are still proceeding into matters arising out of the Poulson bankruptcy hearings.—[Vol. 843, c.88–9.]
