§ 39. Mr. Hannan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Bill to reform the social services in Scotland will be introduced.
§ Mr. Hannan
Is my right hon. Friend aware that that reply will give great satisfaction to social workers and members of the committee who provided the earlier report, but can he indicate how soon we may expect the Bill to come to this House?
§ Mr. Ross
Well, I should not like to judge the speed with which the other place will deal with legislation—as compared with the speed with which my hon. Friends deal with sewerage in Scotland—but I hope that we shall have it in reasonable time in order to get it on the Statute Book before the end of the Session.
