asked the Lord Advocate whether he will make inquiry into the recent granting of the licence of the Cross-keys Inn, in Johnstone, in order to find out whether there was an infringement of Section 106 of the Act of 1903, in so far as the applicant was represented by a partner of one of the officials of the Licensing Court; and will he take some action to prevent the breach of that Section in future cases?

Assuming that, as stated by my hon. and learned Friend in a former question to me on this subject, the applicant on the occasion referred to was represented by a partner of the Depute J. P. Clerk of the County, no breach of Section 106 was committed, and the latter part of my hon. and learned Friend's question therefore does not arise.
