§ Bill considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Clause 1.
§ Amendment proposed, in page 1, line 20, to leave out the word "ten," and insert the word "twenty."—(Mr. Caldwell.)
§ Question proposed, "That the word 'ten' stand part of the Clause."
§ MR. JACKSON
I do not know whether this has been agreed to by the Lord Advocate; if not, I must ask that Progress be reported.
MR. PARKER SMITH (Lanarkshire, Partick)
I think it has been agreed to 1997 by the Lord Advocate. The Amendment is to allow the owners to have some larger percentage than the Bill provides.
§ Committee report Progress; to sit again to-morrow.
