§ MR. J. STEWART
asked the Lord Advocate, Whether the Committee of Judges, now engaged in framing new rules of legal procedure, are to hold their final meeting to-morrow; and if he can state that they have agreed to make such alterations in the rule relative to the jurisdiction of English Courts over persons resident in Scotland as, in his judgment, are sufficient to remove the grievance complained of?
THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR),
in reply, said, that there had been draft amendments to the Rules proposed, which it was hoped would remove the grievances complained of; but he was not aware whether they had been overtaken by the Committee of Judges. He hoped to be able to answer that question shortly.
