HC Deb 10 February 1876 vol 227 c135

asked the honourable Member for Wigtonshire, Whether it is his intention to introduce this Session a Bill for the abolition of the Landlord's rights of Hypothec in Scotland?.


, in reply, said, he had not as yet moved for leave to introduce a Bill for the abolition of the Landlord's right of Hypothec in Scotland, because last Session they were given to understand that Her Majesty's Government intended to introduce a Bill on the subject of agricultural holdings in Scotland similar to that which had been passed for England. If he was disappointed in the hope that such measure would deal with the question of Hypothec, he should be prepared to bring the subject before the House in the form of an Amendment to the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Bill.
