HC Deb 03 July 1919 vol 117 c1166
77. Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he will consider the incorporation in the Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill of proposals to give to all tenant farmers security of tenure on the lines of The Small Landholders (Scotland) Act, 1911?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the statement made on Monday last by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture, in reply to the hon. and. gallant Member for Central Aberdeen. At present I have nothing to add to this statement.

Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY

Will the right hon. Gentleman consider this matter? The Parliamentary Secretary made no reference in his answer to Scotland at all, and if the right hon. Gentleman does not include proposals in the Land Settlement Bill for Scotland, will he introduce a separate Bill for the purpose?


I will certainly consider the suggestion.
