Lieut.-Commander Clark Hutchison:
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is yet in a position to make a statement on the administration of Scottish affairs.
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now make a statement on the steps he proposes to take to secure a greater measure of Scottish control over Scottish affairs.
I hope to make a statement on this subject in the near future.
Will my right hon. Friend say when "the near future" is, as this has been the subject of deliberation for 18 months now?
About 10 days.
Might I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether his administration in Scotland is as bad as the Government's administration in this country, which is most deplorable?
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind consultations with the former Secretaries of State?
That raises constitutional difficulties in a non-Coalition Government.
