§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, having regard to the fact that several thousands of ratepayers in Scotland, who are entitled to vote for the Parliamentary representative and the County and Parish Council, are debarred from voting at School Board elections by reason of their rentals being less than £4, will he state whether a date has vet been fixed for 40 bringing in the promised Bill dealing with the question?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. GRAHAM MURRAY,) Buteshire
I have referred to all my previous answers to the honourable Member on this subject, and there is no promise contained in them to bring in a Bill, as alleged in, the Question. Having carefully considered the subject, the Government are not prepared to make any promise in regard to it.
