§ 24. Mr. MORTON
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether anything is being done by the Government to get possession of the land in Scotland for the use of returned sailors and soldiers and for the production of food for the people; and whether he is aware of the feeling that exists in Scotland with regard to the settlement of the land question?
§ The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. Munro)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on the 20th instant on the same subject to my hon. Friend the Member for the College Division of Glasgow. I am, of course, aware of the interest taken in the Land question in Scotland, and I fully appreciate the benefits which would accrue if agreement could be reached.
§ Mr. MORTON
Arising out of that reply, may I ask my right hon. Friend whether he has received a copy of the resolution passed by the Sutherland County Council on the 19th December with regard to the deer forests and small holdings?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The right hon. Gentleman has only received it this morning. I think the hon. Member might give a longer interval before asking for action.
§ Mr. PRINGLE
May I suggest that this should apply to everybody; and that you should not bother about agreements, but go and take the land.
