§ MR. DYCE NICOL
said, he wished to ask the Lord Advocate, Whether he intends to introduce, this Session, a general Road Bill for Scotland?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE
Sir, the subject to which the Question of the hon. Gentleman refers is one of increasing importance; but I doubt, having regard to the numerous important measures already promised to be introduced during the present Session, whether it would be possible to bring in a measure on this subject. Besides, I think it not improbable that by next year the opinion of the counties of Scotland will be more ripe for dealing with road improvements in Scotland than it is at present.
