HC Deb 24 March 1971 vol 814 cc132-3W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects the review of the Scottish Law Commission, pertaining to alimony.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The machinery for enforcing court decrees for aliment and civil debt generally is being examined by the Scottish Law Commission as part of its study of the law of diligence. Work on this is still at an early stage and it is not yet possible to say when the Commission's report will be available.
