§ MR. BLACK (Banffshire)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Department are being called upon to make any payments for access to land at Rosyth, in addition to the £135,000 already paid; and, if so, will he say what these claims amount to.
§ MR. PRETYMAN
The Admiralty have not been called upon to make any such payments for access. In order to make a railway connection with the North British Railway Company's line it has been necessary to acquire an area of glebe land from the Minister of Inver-keithing. This had to be purchased on a valuation of the Court of Teinds which fixed the price at £4,800. The area is about 6¼ acres.
