asked the Lord Advocate when it is proposed to proceed with the trial of the Scottish contractor who was proceeded against on petition and liberated on substantial bail?
The investigation of this case has been unusually difficult and prolonged. I expect to be in a position within a very short time to decide whether or not to proceed further with the case.
Will the Lord Advocate be good enough to communicate with me or answer a Question in the House when he is in a position to take action?
Certainly. I will inform the hon. Gentleman as soon as I have decided.
