§ Mr. MORTON
asked whether it is the intention of the Government to at once introduce a Bill to amend the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act, to meet the difficulty that has arisen in connection with the single arbiter clause, etc.?
MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
asked the Lord Advocate whether he will recommend that the legal expenses in the case of Stewart v. Williamson shall be defrayed from public funds?
§ Sir JOHN DEWAR
asked whether, seeing that a decision has now been given by the House of Lords in the case of Stewart v. Williamson, the Government are now prepared to proceed with a Bill to take sheep stock and other away-going farm valuations out of the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act, 1908; and whether the Government will consider favourably an application for a Grant towards the expense of the litigation, seeing it was undertaken to determine whether the intention of the House of Commons to exclude such valuations from the scope of the Act was borne out by the Act?
