HC Deb 21 March 1923 vol 161 cc2590-1W

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health when it is expected that a Report upon Scottish Church Endowments will be received from Viscount Haldane's Committee; and whether it will be issued in time for full consideration by all interested before the meeting of the General Assembly of the Church in May?

Captain ELLIOT

It is not yet possible to answer the question with certainty. The Scottish Church Endowment Committee is far advanced with its work, and has a Report in draft for final consideration. Whether this will be finally adopted depends on the consideration of legal questions which will, it is hoped, be disposed of after a meeting which is likely to be held shortly. The utmost expedition practicable is being aimed at.
