HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 c56W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is considering the consolidation of the Solicitors (Scotland) Acts; if so, when he expects to introduce the necessary legislation; and if he has received any representations objecting to such a consolidation.

Mr. Harry Ewing

Much preparatory work has been done on consolidation of the Solicitors (Scotland) Acts but I cannot yet say when it will be possible for a Bill to be introduced for this purpose. I have received no representation objecting to such a consolidation.
