HC Deb 02 June 1893 vol 13 cc43-4
DR. MACGREGOR (Inverness-shire)

I bog to ask the Secretary for Scotland, considering that the Royal Commission on Baud in the Highlands and Islands have now, after about a month's work, found it necessary to suspend operations for a throe weeks' rest at the best period of the year for prosecuting their labours, when does he expect the Commission to complete the inquiry referred to it; and whether he will call for an interim Report on the Isle of Skye, which has already been gone over by the Commission, so that Parliament may have an opportunity of considering the amount of land available there for the enlargement of holdings and for allotment to the inhabitants of the congested districts?


I am unable to say when the Commissioners will con- clude their labours, as to the nature of which I spoke to the House in some detail on the Report of the Vote on Account. With regard to the question of an interim Report, I will communicate with the Chairman of the Commission.
