§ MR. J. H. C. HOZIER
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland what the 956 Government propose to do with regard to the Disestablishment of the Church of Scotland?
§ SIR G. O. TREVELYAN
As there did not appear to be a prospect of the time required to pass a Government Bill for the Disestablishment of the Church of Scotland during the present Session, such a Measure was not mentioned in the Queen's Speech. Had the Government, however, seen a prospect of practical legislation on the subject, their Bill would have been framed on the lines of the Bill brought in last Session by the hon. Baronet, the Member for the College Division of Glasgow, to which the Government gave their full support.
