§ Mr. WEIR
asked the Prime Minister, in view of the failure on the part of the Government to carry the Small Landholders (Scotland) Bill through Parliament and the urgent need of land legislation for the Highlands, will the Government consider the expediency of introducing a short. Bill to meet the special requirements of the crofting counties and thus allay the unrest disclosed by the land seizures in Vater-say, and the more recent seizure in the island of Lewis, and threatened seizures in Harris.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The answer to my hon. Friend is in the negative. The policy of the Government in regard to land in Scotland, which was designed to meet the needs of Highlands as well as Lowlands, has been twice approved by this House and remains unchanged.
