said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether any measure is being prepared by the Lord Advocate for Scotland for the consolidation and application to Scotland of the various Sanitary and Nuisances Acts at present in operation; and, whether he is about to bring in any measure for the more economical settlement of disputes arising in carrying out the Poor Law Act?


said, in reply, that there was a Bill in preparation for consolidating and amending the Law relating to nuisances in Scotland, and he expected that it would be ready in about a fortnight.
