§ Mr. BUCHANAN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the reason for the delay in replying to a letter addressed to him about five months ago regarding the Glasgow Small Debt Court; and when he is likely to reply?
Mr. W. ADAMSON
The matter raised in the letter referred to was one of a number of important questions as to procedure in the Glasgow Sheriff Courts which have been the subject of consultation with the Sheriff. Satisfactory arrangements were made some time ago as the result of this correspondence in regard to the procedure in rent cases. I am still in communication with the Sheriff on certain outstanding points. I hope to be able to write to the hon. Member very shortly.
