HC Deb 23 May 1898 vol 58 c364
MR. J. WILSON (Falkirk)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if he will press forward the Appeal for Jury Repeal (Scotland) Bill, seeing that it is desirable that it should be on the Statute Book by the 1st July, the date of the commencement of the Workmen's Compensation Act?


As I have reason to believe that the Bill referred to is to meet with opposition, and as the matters dealt with in it form a proper subject for the consideration of the Departmental Committee on Sheriff Court Procedure, I do not think it will be desirable to press it this Session.
