Mr. Menzies Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will institute an inquiry into the procedures to be followed and the factors to be taken into account when a change in the rate of interest in decrees and extracts of the Scottish courts takes place.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

I have no plans to bring forward amendments to the existing statutory provisions which place responsibility on the Lord President of the Court of Session for changes in the rate of interest on decrees and extract decrees of the Scottish courts.
