Queen's Recommendation having been signified—

Resolved. That, for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to make new provision for Scotland as respects the law relating to the qualification of jurors, to amend the law relating to jury service in Scotland, to make further provision for Scotland in respect of prior rights in the estates of deceased persons, to enable amendments to be made to provisions of the Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1967 relating to contributions from assisted persons, and to amend the provisions of the Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973 relating to limitation of actions, it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of any increase in the sums payable out of the Legal Aid (Scotland) Fund, in so far as any such increase is attributable to provisions of the said Act of the present Session which enable—

  1. (a) new amounts to be substituted for the amounts of disposable income and capital above which such contributions may be required; or
  2. (b) courts to allow actions of damages in respect of personal injury to be brought outwith the time-limits generally applying.—[The Solicitor General for Scotland.]
