HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 cc1281-2
51. Lieut.-Colonel AMURRAY

asked. the Prime Minister on what date the Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill will be introduced; and on what day its Second Reading stage will be taken?


Notice will be given of the Bill to-day, and I hope that it may be possible to take the Second Reading on Friday.

Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY

In view of the very short time at the disposal of Scottish Members for consideration of the Bill after it has been printed, will the right hon. Gentleman consider adjourning the Debate, after the Secretary for Scotland has spoken on the Second Reading, to an early date after the Recess, when we shall have been able to consult our Constituents regarding the Bill?


My right hon. Friend will consider that suggestion if it is found impracticable to have the Second Reading in the ordinary way.
