HC Deb 01 December 1983 vol 49 c545W
Mr. Wilson

asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland if, following the experience of the experimental small claims court in Dundee, he will introduce a permanent procedure.

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

My noble and learned Friend the Lord Advocate has been considering the lessons to be drawn from the Dundee small claims experiment in the light of the comments which he has received. The Lord Advocate hopes that it may be possible to introduce a small claims scheme within the existing summary cause procedure and hopes shortly to discuss with the Lord President of the Court of Session and the Sheriff Court Rules Council what can be done, at least in the first instance without primary legislation, to meet the needs which have been identified.
