§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I think, Sir, it would be for the convenience of the House that they should know before Thursday what Bill the Secretary for Scotland intends to refer to the Scotch Grand Committee, if he succeeds in obtaining it.
§ SIR GEORGE TREVELYAN
The wording of the order is to the effect that the Bills to be referred to the Committee should be Government Bills, and that the House itself shall refer them to the Committee. In the opinion of the Government, three Scotch Bills now in a prominent position before the House—the Crofters' Bill, the County Government Bill, and the Fatal Accidents Bill—might well be referred to the Scotch Grand Committee.
