§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Secretary for Scotland is aware that the greater part of the grazing farm of Glastullich, at Lochbroom, Ross-shire, is about to be added to the deer forest of Rhidorroch; and, in view of the extension of deer forests in the Highlands, will the Government consider the advisability of introducing legislation to prevent land suitable for occupation by the people being converted into deer forest.
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. GRAHAM MURRAY, Buteshire)
The farm of Glastullich has lately been broken up and a large portion granted by the proprietor as an extension of holdings to five neighbouring crofter townships. The Secretary for Scotland has no reason to suppose that addition of the remainder 11 to the deer forest of Rhidorrioch will prejudicially affect the economic condition of the district, and does not contemplate legislation in the direction suggested.
