§ 81. Sir A. SINCLAIR
asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health how many ex-service men obtained entry during the year ended Whitsunday, 1922, to small holdings constituted by the Board of Agriculture in the counties of Caithness and Sutherland; how many will have obtained entry during the year ending Whitsunday, 1923: whether any schemes have been approved under which ex-service men will get holdings during the year ending Whitsunday, 1924; and, if so, how many holdings will be constituted under such schemes during that year?
§ Captain ELLIOT (Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Health, Scotland)
The answer to the first part of the question is 55; to the second part 6. Schemes have been approved under which 74 ex-service men will get holdings in the year ending Whitsunday, 1924, provided it is found possible to carry out all these schemes.
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
Will the hon. and gallant Gentleman give the statistics for all the other counties?
§ Captain ELLIOT
If my right hon. Friend will put down a question I will give him all the information I can.
