§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, seeing that the acreage of the Deer Forest of Applecross, Ross-shire, consists of 75,000 acres, whereas in the amended Deer Forest Return issued by the Crown agent for Scotland the forest is stated to contain no more than 37,000 acres, will he take steps to ascertain the approximate acreage of this deer forest.
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SCOTT DICKSON,) Glasgow, Bridgeton
The figure 37,000 1199 was supplied by the assessor. I do not know from what source the hon. Member derives the figure 75.000. I must refer him to the answer I gave on the 6th of May, 1902. What I then said of the general case applies equally to the particular.
