§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. GRAHAM MURRAY,) Buteshire
having presented the Appeal for Jury (Repeal) (Scotland) Bill to Amend the Court of Session Act, 1868,
§ MR. T. R. BUCHANAN (Aberdeenshire, E.)
Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask your ruling on a point of order—namely, whether it is in order for a Member of the Government to introduce a Government Bill on a Tuesday at the commencement of public business?
§ *MR. SPEAKER
I am well aware that the practice has been for the Government to confine themselves to Mondays and Thursdays, but there is nothing in the Standing Order to prevent them introducing their Bills on a Tuesday or a Friday if they choose. Any Member 1384 may, at the commencement of public business, move to introduce a Bill on a Tuesday or Friday, and the Government Ministers have the additional privilege of making such a motion on a Monday or Thursday.
