Friend aware that if the higher income groups in Scotland receive encouragement from him to have higher salaries at present, it will arouse the greatest resentment throughout the lower income group, particularly rail-way-men and others employed in heavy occupations, who are not receiving wage increases?

Arising out of a question from the benches opposite, does the right hon. Gentleman realise that the salaries at present paid to sheriffs and to sheriffs-substitute are, in view of their responsibilities, an absolute scandal?
