referring to the second and third items in the Orders of the Day—Crofters' Holdings (Scotland) Bill and Local Government (Scotland) Bill respectively—asked whether the Crofters' Bill was to have precedence of the Scottish Local Government Bill?

I have already said that the Naval Works Bill will be the first Order to-morrow.

Will the right hon. Gentleman take care that the Crofters' Bill is introduced before Easter?
