§ House in Committee (according to Order.)1292
§ THE EARL OF WEMYSS
asked, whether the Bill would put the law with regard to sporting rating in the same position in Scotland as that which existed in England?
§ THE EARL OF ELGIN
, in reply, said, that he did not profess to be an authority upon the subject; but he had made inquiries with regard to this before moving the second reading, and he understood that in England sporting lands were rated whether they were let or not.
§ An Amendment made; the Report thereof to be received To-morrow.
