HC Deb 06 September 1887 vol 320 cc1349-50
DR. CLARK (Caithness)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether it is the fact that the large number of crofters disfranchised for non-payment of rates in the Western Highlands and Islands are under £4 a-year rental, and have been disfranchised in consequence of the land- lords not having paid the compounded rates within the appointed time?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) () Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities

I have no information in amplification of the answer I gave on the 2nd of September.
