§ 39. Sir ROBERT HAMILTON
asked the Secretary for Scotland when he proposes 1138 to introduce his Bill dealing with the resumption of small holdings?
§ Sir R. HAMILTON
Does the right hon. Gentleman remember an undertaking he gave a short time ago that he would introduce it at a very early date?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that he promised to give the subject immediate consideration, and can we have a pledge that a Bill will be introduced before Whitsuntide?
I am well aware that I gave a promise when the matter was discussed last to give my attention to it. That promise has been carried out, but I cannot at the moment say when the Bill will be introduced.
§ Major McKENZIE WOOD
Does the right hon. Gentleman intend to bring in a Bill to deal with the matter?
