HC Deb 05 December 1890 vol 349 c656
DR. CLARK (Caithness)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Scotch Office has received any communication from the Crofter Commission as to the reason why the clauses extending holdings has been inoperative; and whether the Government intend doing anything in regard to the matter?


The Secretary for Scotland received a Report from the Commissioners with reference to this subject, and it was laid on the Table of the House. No other Report has been received. No decision has been come to by the Government as to whether it is expedient to take any further steps in the matter.
