§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate whether under the Churches (Scotland) Bill the Free Church and the United Free Church will be able to hold the property allocated to them respectively, notwithstanding any alteration that may be made in their constitution or doctrines.
THE LORD-ADVOCATE (Mr. SCOTT DICKSON, Glasgow, Bridgton)
The Answer to the Question of the hon. and learned Member must obviously depend on the precise alteration and on whether it is permitted by the constitution of the Church making it.
