§ 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.
