HC Deb 17 April 1888 vol 324 c1490
DR. CLARK (Caithness)

asked time Lord Advocate, Whether he has seen the statement in The Scottish Leader of 13th April, that the Crofters' Commission has reduced the rents of Lord Lovat's crofters from £995 to £689, although Lord Lovat reduced the same rents about 18 months ago from £1,202 to £995; and, whether the statement is accurate?

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

I have not seen the statement, and have not as yet any official Report to enable me to say whether it is accurate.
