HC Deb 06 November 1911 vol 30 c1250

asked the Lord Advocate if he has received a memorandum from the Association of County Councils of Scotland, pointing out that a crofter is not a lessee and is liable to be assessed at the sum at which his croft might be reasonably expected to be let; and whether, in view of the fact that such method of assessment has not been adopted since the passing of the Crofter Acts, he will see that the small landholders will not be placed in any more favourable position than existing crofters?


The Memorandum has been received. The question raised will come up on discussion to-day on Amendments, and I shall then indicate the position of the Government in the matter.
