§ SIR D. MACFARLANE (Argyll)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been called to the condition of some of the poor cultivators in the Island of Coll who are unable to purchase seed for their Spring crops; and if he will enable them to obtain the necessary seed, without which they must ultimately be reduced to starvation?
§ SIR G. O. TREVELYAN
My attention has not been called to the matter. If any application is laid before me, I shall refer it to the Local Government Board.
§ DR. MACGREGOR
said, great destitution existed in the Hebrides. Would the right hon. Gentleman see that the state of things there was not overlooked?
