§ 7. Mr. Neil Maclean
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made by the committee set up in February last under the chairmanship of Lord Normand to ensure that the recommendations in the Scott Report, so far as they are applicable to Scottish conditions, are covered by inquiries already in hand in Scotland?
Lord Normand's Committee has now furnished its Report. While recording a few detailed suggestions for Scottish application this Report states that all the more important and urgent 4 of the Scott Committee's recommendations are being given close and practical study, and does not advise any departure from the present method of dealing with the Scott Report in its bearing on Scottish conditions. This Report from Lord Normand's Committee has been presented to Parliament and copies will, I hope, be available in the Vote Office to-day.
