HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 c672

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state what part of the Alness River, Ross-shire, is under the control of the Commissioners of Woods and Forests; is any part of the river leased; if so, what, part, to whom, at what rental, and for what period.


I am informed that the salmon fishings in the River Alness ex adverso a part of the Coull Estate are let by the Commissioners of Woods to Mr. S. C. Munro, for a term of ten years, from Martinmas, 1900, at the rent of £6 per annum. This is the only part of the river which is at present under the control of the Commissioners.
