HC Deb 01 July 1913 vol 54 c1656
53. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that John Buchanan has been evicted by sheriff officers and the Oban police from the farm of Baugh, Tiree, which has been taken by the Board of Agriculture (Scotland); what are the reasons for his eviction; and whether he will state the circumstances in which Mrs. Buchanan, the widow of the late tenant of Baugh, was refused continuance of the tenancy?


The Board of Agriculture has no responsibility for the eviction. I am informed that the house, which has been the residence of the doctor in the past, was required by the estate as the residence of the new doctor, the lease having expired.
