Member for Stirling and Falkirk (Mr. Westwood) rather suggested that the Secretary of State was not alive to the gravity of this problem, but the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Bill. (15 Apr 1937)

Mr James Guy: I am rather surprised at the attack made by the hon. Member for Springburn (Mr. Hardie) against the formula under the 1929 Act.

Gentleman the Member for...
