HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 c588W

asked the Lord Advocate if his attention has been called to the effects in Scotland of the repeal of the Accumulations Act, 1800, by the Law of Property Act, 1925, which refers to England and Wales only; and if it is the intention of the Government to take any action in the matter whether by a declaratory Bill or otherwise?


The question whether the Accumulations Act, 1800, so far as relating to Scotland, has been repealed by the Law of Property Act, 1925, is a question which it is hoped will be matter of decision by the Appeal Court in Scotland at an early date. In any event, the subject is receiving attention.
