HC Deb 04 April 1973 vol 854 cc100-1W
29. Mr. Ronald King Murray

asked the Lord Advocate what arrangements are proposed by him to enable the Scottish Law Commission to consider and to report upon changes in the law of Scotland resulting from British membership of the European Economic Community; and if he will make a statement.

The Lord Advocate

The Scottish Law Commission already has the necessary statutory powers for the consideration of such matters. The commission will be further strengthened in the autumn by the appointment of Professor Anton, an acknowledged authority in the field of private international law, on a full-time basis.
