§ 5. Major MACKENZIE WOOD
asked the Secretary for Scotland how many farms have been acquired or made available for small holdings in Scotland since the original grant under the Land Settlement (Scotland) Act, 1919, was exhausted in May last; and in how many schemes have building operations been commenced since then?
§ The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. Munro)
One estate, consisting of two farms, has been purchased since May last, and eight farms have been secured under the provisions of the Landholders' Acts. Building operations have been commenced in eight schemes, in addition to work already in progress at 1st June.
§ Major WOOD
Is it the case that the acquisition of land for small holdings in Scotland has been suspended?
