HC Deb 24 April 1907 vol 173 cc42-3
MR. WATT (Glasgow, College)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether his attention has been called to the fact that it is proposed to alter the time within which appeals to the House of Lords from the Court of Session may be taken from two years to one year; whether he is aware that even this reduced delay will cause loss and inconvenience to litigants; and whether he will consider the advisability of taking steps to have the time fixed at six months or less, seeing that the time for appeals in Scotland never exceeds twenty-one days.


The substantial reduction of the time for appeals to the House of Lords from judgments of the Court of Session has my warmest approval, and I have been for some time and still am in communication on the subject matter of this Question with the Lord Chancellor.
