HC Deb 24 May 1901 vol 94 c1120
MR. CATHCART WASON () Orkney and Shetland

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, having regard to the results of the experiments made in Ireland in afforestation, similar experiments will be made in the Highlands and islands of Scotland.


It is not proposed to carry out such experiments as are referred to by the hon. Member. I may add that such experiments would not fall within the scope of the Congested Districts (Scotland) Act, 1897.
