HC Deb 25 May 1897 vol 49 c1261

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether there is any objection to stating the nature of the application made to the Colonisation Board on behalf of the Crofters' settlements in Manitoba?

*MR. H. T. ANSTRUTHER (, on behalf of the LORD ADVOCATE) St. Andrews Burghs

My right hon. and learned Friend regrets that he is not in a position to give the exact information asked for by the hon, Member as communications on the subject are pending, and any explanation given at present would only be misleading.
