HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 c695
Mr. GULLAND (Dumfries Burghs)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether he is aware that there is great disappointment in Scotland that the Qualification of Women (County and Borough Councils) Bill does not apply to Scotland, where for many years women have worked on school boards and parish councils; and whether ho can see his way to remedy this defect during the passage of the Bill in another place or in this House.


The Scottish law covering this subject is somewhat different from the English law and, therefore, it has been necessary to prepare a separate though generally similar Bill for the case of Scotland. That Bill is ready and will shortly be introduced into the House of Lords.
