Orders of the Day — Succession (Scotland) Bill: Clause 30. — (Presumption of Survivorship in Respect of Claims to Property.) (11 May 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. I think that it would be convenient for the House, as this Amenmdent paves the way for the next Amendment in page 20, line 29, if the two could be discussed together. When two persons, not being husband and wife, died together paragraph (b) of Clause 30, as that Clause stood when it left this House, raised the...

Orders of the Day — Succession (Scotland) Bill: Clause 35. — (Interpretation.) (11 May 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This is a drafting Amendment to meet a criticism of the definition of "estate" in Clause 35. It was suggested to us that by referring to estate on which the deceased had tested or might have tested the definition would exclude that part of the deceased's estate which might be claimed as jus relictae or legitim,...

Orders of the Day — Succession (Scotland) Bill: Clause 35. — (Interpretation.) (11 May 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This is a drafting Amendment to avoid a verbal inconsistency with Clause 18(2) where the word "competently" is used.

Orders of the Day — Succession (Scotland) Bill: Clause 35. — (Interpretation.) (11 May 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This is a drafting Amendment consequential on the Amendments we made to Clauses 12 and 13 and on the introduction of the new Clause that now follows Clause 29.

Orders of the Day — Succession (Scotland) Bill: Schedule 3. — (Enactments Repealed.) (11 May 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This Amendment removes from the Repeal Schedule an Act of the Parliament of Scotland included in that Schedule in error. The effect of the repeal of this Act would be to make heritable for the purposes of succession a type of security, namely, a personal bond, which has been regarded as moveable for 300 years....

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move Amendment No. 45, in page 38, line 6, to leave out "shall" and to insert "to". I suggest, Mr. Speaker, that it might be for the convenience of the House to take at the same time Amendment No. 46, in page 38, line 8, to leave out "before trial".

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The purpose of the first Amendment is merely grammatical, to fit the wording of Section 4(1,b) of the 1956 Act. It is the second Amendment which is the more important. I should make clear at once that this Amendment makes no change of substance, but it is intended to remove a misleading implication. The police powers of arrest and detention are strictly limited in time, as the House knows,...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, Amendment No. 47, in page 38, to leave out lines 9 and 10 and to insert: for subsection (2) there shall be substituted the following subsection— '(2) The performance by a constable of a duty under any other enactment or under any rule of law shall be subject to the direction of the appropriate chief constable.'; for subsection (4) there shall be substituted the following...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The Amendment is designed to give the Scottish constable, in place of his present limited jurisdiction, a general jurisdiction throughout Scotland. There is, however, a saving for the provisions of Section 5 of the 1956 Act which gives limited jurisdiction across the Border to constables of the Border counties of Berwick, Roxburgh, Dumfries, Northumberland and Cumberland in relation to the...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I have once again considered this Amendment very carefully. We had some discussion on this matter during the Committee stage up-stairs. I agreed with the preliminary remarks of the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) when he mentioned how very complicated study of this Schedule can be, with the various references back. But it is the price which we had to pay for ensuring that we got this...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: We are now at the Report stage, so that we have been able to make some progress. I cannot accept these Amendments. I quite agree that the Amendment in page 39, line 41, is the most important. It would remove the power of a police authority to retire an assistant chief constable in the interests of efficiency, subject to the approval of the Secretary of State. The Amendment in page 38, line...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: No. It is the hon. Member who is illogical, because, surely, he would not wish to remove the safeguards in subsection (2).

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move Amendment No. 49, in page 39, line 12, to leave out from beginning to "but" in line 15 and to insert: (4) Where the Secretary of State is satisfied that the whole or any part of the expenses of a chief constable or deputy or assistant chief constable in respect of an inquiry under this section were not reasonably incurred, he may direct the constable to pay those expenses or...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move Amendment No. 53, in page 42, line 23, at the end to insert: 10. In section 12, in paragraph (b) of subsection (2), after the words "police forces" there shall be inserted the words "or to collaboration agreements", and in paragraph (c) the words "other than a constable" shall be omitted. These alterations are consequential. That to Section 12(2,b) follows on the new section 16A...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move Amendment No. 54, in page 43, line 11, at the end to insert: 12 In section 23, for subsection (1) there shall be substituted the following subsection:— (1) Where, immediately before the date when an amalgamation scheme comes into operation, either— (a) section 29B (1) (a) of this Act, or(b) section 2 of the Police (Overseas Service) Act 1945, applied to any person as having...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: As the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) has recalled, we had a considerable discussion in Committee of the recording and investigation of complaints. I certainly recognise that this is one of the matters which most interest the general public, but I must advise the House to reject the Amendments, for reasons which I should now like to give. Under the new section 11 (2,e) of the Police...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Perhaps I may speak again by leave of the House to reply to the points that have been made. First, the hon. Member for Coatbridge and Airdrie (Mr. Dempsey) mentioned an occasion when he made a complaint by telephone and no record was kept. There is a subsequent Amendment on the Notice Paper which suggests that the complaint should be in writing and should not be accepted over the telephone....

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Perhaps it will ensure that a record is kept in future. The hon. Lady the Member for Leeds, South-East (Miss Bacon) referred to Clause 49(1) and asked why Scotland was not following the procedure in the English part of the Bill. I cannot resist saying that she will have noticed that generally in police matters Scotland has been far ahead of England and Wales, if I may be allowed to introduce...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: To give the hon. Member an absolutely accurate reply I should like a little notice, but, on the converse side of it, I am not aware of any complaints in this respect.

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I cannot give way at the moment. I now come to the third category, the one with which we are really dealing. I accept that there is at present no administrative or statutory requirement in Scotland that all complaints by members of the public against the police should be recorded. I also naturally accept that the Royal Commission recommended that regulations should provide that every...
