HC Deb 30 July 1912 vol 41 c1846
41. Mr. MORTON

asked the Patronage Secretary to the Treasury whether he received some time ago a largely-signed memorial from Scottish Liberal Members, asking that the Report stage and Third Reading of the Temperance (Scotland) Bill should be taken at an early date; whether he can yet give a definite date; and, if not, can he give the Scottish people an assurance that it is still the intention of the Government to pass that Bill through its remaining stages in the Autumn Session?


My right hon. Friend received the memorial from Scottish Members with regard to the Temperance (Scotland) Bill, and we shall arrange to find an early time in the Autumn Session for its remaining stages.
