§ MR. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether Her Majesty's Government, considering that they have found themselves 150 unable to implement the promise contained in Her Majesty's Gracious Speech to introduce during the present Session a measure dealing with the Established Church in Scotland, will adopt the Bill brought in by the hon. Member for the College Division of Glasgow?
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Sir G. TREVELYAN,) Glasgow, Bridgeton
The Government approves of the proposal contained in Sir Charles Cameron's Bill for putting an end to the Establishment, of the Church of Scotland, and for dealing with its endowments. They regard it as a measure which provides in a just and equitable manner for the settlement of this important question, and as one framed upon lines on which legislation might be expected to proceed.
§ MR. HOZIER (Lanark, S.)
May I ask whether the Government are going to adopt that Bill? That is the question.
