HC Deb 13 April 1875 vol 223 c782

asked the Lord Advocate, On what day he intends to introduce the Bill respecting the rates levied in Scotland for building and repairing Churches and Manses, which, in his speech, on 8th July last, he undertook to bring in during the present Session?


Sir, the subject of assessments for the building and repairing of churches and manses in Scotland has been repeatedly under my consideration. I regret that, owing to circumstances beyond my control, I have not yet been able to submit a matured proposal to the Government; but I have hopes that I may be able to introduce some measure on the subject during the present Session.
