HC Deb 06 March 1860 vol 157 c15

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to introduce into Parliament in the present Session any Bill to amend the Lunacy (Scotland) Act. He would also ask how it is that the Scotch Reform Bill has not as yet been issued to Members, although the English and Irish Bills have been for some days delivered?


said, with respect to the Scotch Lunacy Act, the matter was under the consideration of the Lord Advocate, and the right hon. and learned Lord would shortly ask leave to introduce a Bill. He believed he might say the Scotch Reform Bill would be in the hands of Members to-morrow.
