Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland. – in the House of Commons on 12th December 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the First Commissioner of Works, as representing the Secretary for Scotland, whether the Government proposes to introduce a Measure of Home Rule for Scotland at an early date?
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by the Prime Minister yesterday to a similar question put by the hon. Member for Western Derbyshire (Mr. C. White).
Has that answer been dictated by the fact that the people of Scotland are so opposed to the Government whom he represents?
We are of opposite opinions as to what the people of Scotland think.
I do not think so. I represent the majority.
Will the Government be prepared to give facilities for such a Measure if introduced by a private Member?
That question should be addressed to the Prime Minister.
