asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the separate death rates among men, women and children in Scotland in the years 1927, 1928 and 1929?

As the answer involves a number of figures, I propose, 'with the hon. Member's permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The statement appended gives the death-rate in Scotland in the case of males and females of all ages and children under 15 years respectively:—

if the report by the sheriff-principal of Renfrewshire on his inquiry into the appeals against dismissal by four paisley policemen has been received; and, if so, when he will be in a position to give his decision?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I have made orders dismissing one and allowing three of the appeals, and copies of the orders were sent to the parties concerned on the 31st October.
