Act for Erecting a Gaol for Dundee
This Act was
presented in the reign of King William IV, for the erection and
maintenance of a Gaol, for the Royal Burgh of Dundee, to replace
the gaol which was inconveniently situated in the upper part of
the Town House.
A meeting was
called to appoint commissioners, who in turn would have power to
appoint committees to decide the site of the gaol which should be
provided by the Town Council. The Police Commission should contribute
funds towards the new gaol.
