asked the Lord President of the Council (1) if he will consider, once a Scottish Assembly has been established, abolishing Oral Questions to the Secretary of State for Scotland;(2) if he will consider once a Welsh Assembly has been established, abolishing Oral Questions to the Secretary of State for Wales.
