HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 cc295-6W
42. Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is yet in a position to make a further statement on the Government's policy regarding the proposal that the Scottish Grand Committee should hold meetings in Scotland.

65. Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now move to amend the Standing Orders and practice of the House with a view to improving parliamentary control over Scottish affairs by enabling the Scottish Grant Committee to hold more meetings, to include in their proceedings additional Scottish question sessions, and to hold some meetings in Edinburgh.

Mr. Ross

This Session, for the first time, the report stage of Scottish Bills may be taken in Scottish Grand Committee. I am not yet satisfied that there is any general desire to add further to the Committee's work at the present time.
