§ MR. LAIDLAW
I beg to ask the Prime Minister if, in view of the disappointment felt by a section of the people of Scotland at the failure of the Government to introduce temperance legislation this year, he will meet the earnest wishes of a great majority of the Scottish Members and introduce a Local Veto Bill for Scotland in the early part of next session.
§ SIR. H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I am afraid I cannot make any promise in this matter. I greatly regret that the 498 private Member's Bill for this purpose which was so fortunate in its introduction has been crushed out this session.
