HC Deb 25 February 1875 vol 222 c843

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he intends to introduce this Session any measure dealing with turnpike trusts and the abolition of tolls in Scotland?


, in reply, said, the subject had been for some time under the consideration of the Government, and that but for the temporary absence of the Lord Advocate from the House, in consequence of circumstances which they all deeply deplored, he (Mr. Assheton Cross) would probably have been in a position now to state the views of the Government on the question. He was happy to say he should have the assistance of his right hon. and learned Friend again very shortly, and then he would state what were the intentions of the Government in the matter.
