§ MR. YOUNGER (Ayr Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is now in a position to state when the Bill to amend the Scottish Local Government Act of 1889 will be introduced.
§ MR. GULLAND
I beg also to ask the Secretary for Scotland when he will introduce the Bill dealing with the dates of town council elections and other matters which is suggested by the Convention of Royal Burghs, and which he promised to a deputation last November would be brought in by the Government this session.
