HC Deb 18 March 1886 vol 303 cc1162-3
MR. J. W. BARCLAY (Forfarshire)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether he will, on behalf of the Government, adopt the Tenure Removal (Scotland) Bill, introduced by the honourable Member for Dundee, or introduce a measure dealing with the same subject?

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

said, he knew this was a matter on which there was a good deal of feeling in Scotland. He should be very glad to propose a measure dealing with it; but while he found that there was a unanimity of opinion in favour of a uniform term there was a great deal of difference as to the particular days that would be chosen. He would be glad to confer with hon. Members from Scotland, and to endeavour to settle that question.
