HC Deb 13 March 1923 vol 161 cc1269-70
48. Mr. MAXTON

asked the Prime Minister if he has received a copy of a resolution from the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce requesting the Government to pass legislation with a view to simplifying the transfer of heritable property in Scotland and amending the law of succession; and if he proposes to accede to this request?

Captain ELLIOT

I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. My Noble Friend the Secretary for Scotland will be glad to proceed with this Meausre if opportunity arises.


Is an opportunity likely to arise during this Session?

Captain ELLIOT

I am afraid I cannot answer that question.
