§ Mr. WYLIE (Dumbartonshire)
To ask the Lord Advocate, seeing that in their Report on the Police Superannuation (Scotland) Bill, introduced in 1901, the Select Committee concur in the view that there should not be a great difference in the attractions provided by the English as against the Scotch service, and that, as stated in the Report, the Scottish police would be willing to accept as satisfactory less than the increased scale suggested in said Bill, whether he can now hold out some hope of bringing in a Bill this session to deal with the question on the lines suggested by the Report.
(Answered by Mr. Graham Murray.) The Secretary for Scotland is unable to depart from the answer which was given to the hon. Member last session,† viz., that in view of the terms of the Report of the Select Committee he is not at present prepared to bring in a Bill dealing with the subject.
