§ 44. Sir SAMUEL CHAPMAN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is yet in a position to make any statement with regard to the better preservation and custody of Scottish records?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
Proposals for the better preeservation and custody of the public records of Scotland (including Sheriff Court records) have been the subject of consultation with the various authorities and Departments concerned; and when the necessary details have been adjusted it is the intention of the Government to introduce legislation on the subject.
