§ 44. Mr. WATT
asked whether the Secretary for Scotland has yet had any answer from the magistrates of Glasgow through their town clerk as to the payment of a solatium to Jessie Brown, wrongfully apprehended and punished for solicitation; and will he say what was the nature of the pressure, if any, which he put upon the magistrates to compensate this lady?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I have received a reply from the magistrates who have consented on my suggestion to make further inquiry into this case.
