I have communicated with the local authority in regard to the matter referred to in the question which had not previously been brought to my notice. I understand that petitions were presented in 1924 and 1925 and that a third petition was presented on the 8th instant and is presently under consideration. My information does not show whether the petitioners are a majority of the jewellers in Oban. The action to be taken on the petition falls to be decided by the local authority on whom is laid the duty of administering the Shops Act.
