HC Deb 25 July 1912 vol 41 c1382W

asked the Lord Advocate, in view of the Perjury Act, 1911, which simplified and consolidated the law of perjury and repealed provisions relating to perjury in more than 130 Acts so far as England and Wales are concerned, whether he will consider the advisability of introducing a similar measure for Scotland, so as to simplify and consolidate the law of perjury in Scotland and to complete, so far as Scotland is concerned, the repeal of these and various other statutory provisions relating to perjury?


I shall give the matter referred to careful consideration.
