§ MR. MORTON (Sutherland)
To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he will state the value of the bees and hives supplied to the parish of Dornoch since that parish has been made a congested area.
(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) The Congested Districts Board have supplied to the parish of Dornoch fifty-two hives and swarms of bees. As the prices vary from year to year it is not easy to say, without getting the accounts from the Audit Office, what exactly the cost has been, but a fair average is £2 per outfit, which works out at slightly over £100.
