HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 c2046W
Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how long have the recommendations of the Poor Persons' Representation (Scotland) Committee been under consideration and whether action on the main lines of the recommendations is contemplated in the near future?

Mr. Wedderburn

The recommendations of the committee, which reported on the 25th March, 1937, have been carefully considered, but for the reasons stated in the reply to the hon. Member's question on the subject on the 14th February I can see no prospect of early legislation.
