§ MR. AINSWORTH (Argyllshire)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland how soon he expects to be able to give any further information as to the action the Government propose to take in consequence of the decision of the House of Lords in the case of Gillespie v. Riddell.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
I regret that I am not able to give a definite Answer to my hon. friend in this matter; but it is under the close consideration of the Departments concerned, and I am still receiving representations upon the subject.
§ MR. AINSWORTH
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that unless the difficulty that has arisen in Scotland is dealt with before March there will be trouble in the way of renting farms next year?
