§ DR. CLARK (Caithness)
asked the Lord Advocate, Whether any parishes have been determined to be crofting parishes by the Crofters' Commission since the last Return; and, whether the Annual Report of the Commission will be published before the Vote for the Commission is taken?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities)
No more parishes have been determined to be crofting parishes since the last Return made to Parliament. The intention of the Commissioners to determine the parishes of Kirkwall and St. Ola and Stromness to be crofting parishes has been, as usual, advertised for the last month. No objection to this determination having been made, it is probable that it will be shortly confirmed. I promised last night to inquire as to the Report of the Commission.
