HC Deb 21 January 1847 vol 89 c210

said, that towards the close of the last Session of Parliament he inquired whether the Lord Advocate was prepared to bring in any measures to carry out the recommendations of the Commissioners who had been appointed to inquire into the laws of Scotland; and he received a very satisfactory answer from the hon. and learned Gentleman, who stated that he would give the subject consideration during the recess. He now wished to ask the Lord Advocate whether he intended to introduce any and what measures relative to the laws of Scotland?


said, the subject to which the hon. Gentleman referred, had received, and would continue to receive, his best attention; and he hoped to be able, at a very early period, to lay before the House various measures for the purpose of carrying into effect the recommendations of the Commissioners, particucularly with regard to the law of real property.
