(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that Standing Committee "B" is to sit to morrow morning to consider the Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill, which applies to Scotland, and that the Scottish Grand Committee is also to meet to-morrow morning to consider the Small Landholders and Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Bill; and whether, seeing that a considerable number of Members are on both Committees, he will communicate with the Chairmen of the two Committees to see whether they can make arrangements to ensure that the Committees do not sit at the same time?

1 am aware of the circumstances mentioned by the right hon. Gentleman, and, with the approval of the Chairman, I have arranged that the sitting of the Scottish Grand Committee fixed for to-morrow shall be postponed to Wednesday morning at eleven o'clock.
