HC Deb 12 December 1958 vol 597 c128W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the unsatisfactory state of the law in Scotland relating to the estates of persons dying intestate there; and what steps he is taking to improve it; and when those steps will take the form of legislation.

Mr. Maclay

No doubt the hon. and learned Member has in mind the recommendations of the Mackintosh Committee on the Law of Succession. Legislation on this subject is being prepared but I cannot yet say when it will be possible to introduce a Bill.
