HC Deb 26 April 1909 vol 4 c14

asked the Lord Advocate whether the Secretary for Scotland had yet obtained information in regard to the declared intention of the proprietor of the estate of Ardkinglas, Loch Fyne, to convert into deer forest four farms on his estate, employing 48 men; and would he state whether the Government proposed to take such steps as might be necessary to arrest the continued extension of the deer forest area in the crofting counties, especially bearing in mind the repeated pledges given by the late Prime Minister and other leaders of the Liberal party in regard to sporting areas?


I am informed that there is not and has not been any intention as suggested by my hon. Friend.
