HC Deb 26 May 1909 vol 5 cc1180-1

asked the Prime Minister whether he has received copies of resolutions passed at recent meetings held at Nigg, Portmahomack, Hilton of Cadboll, Balintore, and Hill of Fearn (Easter Ross), strongly urging the Government to reintroduce the Small Landholders (Scotland) Bill, and to take such steps as may be necessary to limit the veto of the House of Lords; and will he state what action he proposes to take in the matter?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

Yes; Sir, I have received the resolutions referred to by my hon. Friend. I cannot at the moment say more than that the matters referred to are not being lost sight of.
