HC Deb 02 August 1904 vol 139 cc516-7

To ask the Secretary for Scotland, in view of the fact that crofters under the Act on the Ferintosh Estate (Black Isle), Ross-shire, have had arrears cancelled and fair rents fixed by the Crofters Commission, whilst tenants on this estate who were leaseholders at the time of the passing of the Crofters Act are now threatened with eviction for nonpayment of arrears of rack rent, will he say whether he proposes to extend the benefits of the Crofters Act to small crofter leaseholders in the Highland crofting counties.

(Answered by Mr. A. Graham Murray.) I have no knowlegde of the facts alleged in the first part of the hon. Member's Question, and I have nothing to add to the Answer I gave on 11th February, 1904.†
