asked the Lord Advocate whether he can now make a statement on the complaints by Clyde shipyard workers against some of the directors of the yard who, the workmen allege, used wood, steel, special metals and skilled workmen to construct domestic shelters,. garden gates', and lengths of rail for a miniature railway?
My right hon. and learned Friend has asked me to reply on his behalf. Proceedings have been taken against two directors and a foreman in respect of alleged improper use of certain materials. While these proceedings are pending the Lord Advocate is unable to make any further statement.
Why, when a workman takes a piece of spare wood is he prosecuted and his name broadcast, and yet the names of these people are suppressed and the public do not know who they are?
