HC Deb 25 March 1872 vol 210 c591

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the promised measure for the management and maintenance of Turnpike Roads and the abolition of Tolls in England, Whether it is intended that the provisions of that measure should extend to Scotland, and, if not, whether he will embrace Scotland in a separate measure?


, in reply, said, that whenever a measure for the management and maintenance of turnpike roads and the abolition of tolls was introduced for England, a similar measure would be applied to Scotland. But the answer of the Lord Advocate the other day as to the Scotch Bill applied to both measures. Both were required; but in the present state of Public Business it was not possible to state when they could be introduced.
