HC Deb 20 December 1906 vol 167 cc1678-9
MR. MORTON (Sutherland)

To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he can say how many of the fifty-two swarms of bees supplied by the Congested Districts Board to the parish of Dornoch, Sutherland, now survive; and whether, seeing that the matter has been a failure, any further trials are contemplated.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) On the first part of the Question I have no information. There is no reason to suppose the experimental supply of hives in Dornoch has been a failure. If further applications from this district are received they will be considered on their merits.
