§ MR. GEORGE KENYON (Denbigh Boroughs)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in settling the terms of reference to the Select Committee on Private Bill Procedure, he will consider the desirability of including the practicability of extending the provisions of the Private Legislation Procedure (Scotland) Act, 1899, to other parts of the United Kingdom.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
The plan which my hon. friend suggests, and other plans for the re-arrangement of Private Bill Legislation, may properly engage the attention of any Committee appointed to investigate the subject.
