HC Deb 01 November 1911 vol 30 c859

asked the Lord Advocate, if he can give the reasons why time has been allocated for all the stages of the National Insurance Bill before the Scottish Members have been informed what Amendments especially relating to Scotland the Chancellor of the Exchequer proposes to make in the Bill?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on Monday to my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfriesshire.


What good does it do Scottish Members to be told that Amendments have been under consideration by the Scottish Office? May I ask the right hon. Gentleman is he speaking for himself or for the so-called mind of the Scottish office? Then I give notice that I shall bring this matter before the House on the Adjournment to-night.
