    Excerpt from Corrected Report of the Speech of the Right Honourable the Lord Advocate of Scotland: Upon the Motion of Lord John Russell, in the House of Commons, on the First of March, 1831, for Reform of Parliament

    I beleive, Sir, that I need scarcely state that the part of the great measure introduced to the House by the Noble Lord, which first attracted 'my'attention, was that which related to the representation of Scotland, - a part of the subject which has hardly been noticed in the course of the debate, and which, from the general silence of the Members for Scotland, I must presume meets with their approbation. The Noble 'lord who explained the measure of Reform to the House,'stated in a speech, unusually distinct and luminous, and, considering its brevity, surprisingly complete, that Government proposed to bring in successively three bills, with the intention of re forming England, Scotland, and Ireland. If I do Bnot greatly misapprehend the rules and forms of this House, the question relating to the represen tation of Scotland is now as much within the considerationsof the House, as if it had been spe cifically brought before its notice. The duty of drawing up the bill, relating to that part of the subject, has been 0 icially entrusted to me; but I certainly have no wish to enter into what might now be considered by the House as an uncalled-for defence of that proposition.. Two Noble Lords on the opposite side of the House have indeed introduced the name of Scotland; but beyond, a general statement of the sufficiency Of the present system of representation, or rather the undoubted prosperity of the country under that system, I am not aware of their having made any im peachment of the proposed alterations, or any distinct vindication of the existing system. (hear, hear.)
