§ Sir ARCHIBALD WILLIAMSON
asked the Secretary for Scotland, if his attention has been called to the fact that a number of landlords in Scotland have given notice, prior to 31st December last, to tenants of small holdings with a view to prevent these holdings coming under the operation of the Small Landholders Act; and whether, seeing that these tenants will still be in occupation of their holdings on 1st April, he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to prevent their being deprived of the advantages of the Act?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
My attention has been called to the statement referred to by my hon. Friend, but no instances have been brought to my notice. The question is essentially one of interpretation of the Act, and it will be for the Land Court to decide each case on the facts. I am not satisfied that there is any case for further legislation.
§ Captain WARING
May I ask what steps are tenants so situated to take in order to bring their cases before the Commissioners?
