I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if he will state at what intervals assessors in Scotland require the proprietors of deer forests to furnish the acreage and other information which may be necessary for the purposes of valuation; and will he say what are the penalties attaching to proprietors for a misstatement of facts.
§ MR. A. GRAHAM MURRAY
As I have already explained to the hon. 214 Member, the acreage is not a factor in the valuation of a deer forest. The other information which may be necessary for the purposes of valuation is already required yearly. As regards the last portion of his question, I must refer the hon. Member to Section 7 of the Lands Valuation Act, 1854.
