§ 27. Mr. BUCHANAN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the grounds on which his Department has refused to sanction certain items for payments by the Glasgow Corporation, arising from the rebuilding of new quarters for the Glasgow police as being too extravagant; and if he will reconsider his decision?
§ Major ELLIOT
The grounds referred to were fully explained in a Scottish Office letter addressed to the town clerk on the 16th April last, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. I am informed that the whole matter was remitted on the 6th instant to a special 2041 sub-committee for consideration and report. I shall give careful consideration to any revised proposals which may thereafter be submitted to me by the police authority.
§ Mr. BUCHANAN
Will the Under-Secretary see that there is no extravagance in this matter, and make sure that no money is uselessly spent?
