§ Sir H. CRAIK
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?2591W
§ 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.
