HC Deb 04 March 1895 vol 31 cc292-3
MR. J. CALDWELL (Mid Lanark)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, looking to the public character of the Lands Valuation (Scotland) Acts Amendment Bill, and to the great importance of the interests affected by the changes proposed by the Bill, a reasonable opportunity will be afforded to the different legal bodies in Scotland to report upon it, after the Government have put down their Amendments, and before the Bill is pressed forward in Committee?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. B. BALFOUR, Clackmannan and Kinross)

Various important communications and suggestions are being received in regard to this Bill, and I have no doubt that my hon. Friend who is in charge of it will not press it forward until reasonable opportunity has been afforded to all persons interested of considering the Bill and the Amendments which it will be proposed to make upon it.
