HC Deb 10 June 1886 vol 306 cc1293-4

asked the Lord Advocate, If his attention has been called to the hardships entailed upon tenants under summons of removal, by their having, under certain circumstances, to find caution for "violent profits;" and, if he contemplates proposing any change in the Law?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR)&c.) (Clackmannan,

I cannot say that this matter has been brought under my notice; but if the hon. Member knows of any case where the existing law has been productive of hardship, and will furnish me with the particulars of it, I shall be glad to consider whether there appears to be a case for legislation.
