HC Deb 29 November 1972 vol 847 c150W
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.]
