§ 44. Mr. ADAMSON
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he will take steps to accelerate the passing into law of the Poor Litigants (Scotland) Bill, which was unanimously passed in this House in an earlier Session of this Parliament?
§ The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. Munro)
I would remind my right hon. Friend that the view taken in another place, when this Bill was considered there, was that if the matter was to be dealt with it ought to be by Amendment of the Standing Orders and not by Bill. In these circumstances, the answer to my right hon. Friend's question is in the negative.
