HC Deb 27 May 1907 vol 174 c1331

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the evictions of certain tenants on the Culloden estate, Ferintosh, Ross-shire, and of the fact that the factor or estate agent has given notice to other tenants; and will he consider the expediency of arranging in the Small Landholders (Scotland) Bill, now before Parliament, for crofter leaseholders to obtain the benefits of the Act directly it becomes law.


My information may not be complete, but I am aware of the incidents to which my hon. friend now draws attention, and the policy of the Government in regard to leaseholders, which was adopted after careful consideration, is contained in the Bill as now before the Scottish Grand Committee.
