HC Deb 24 July 1924 vol 176 c1513

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he can now say when he proposes to make the necessary arrangements for a complete agricultural and forestal survey in Scotland?


The Board of Agriculture for Scotland possess much information respecting agricultural land in Scotland, which has been collected for land settlement and agricultural purposes, and they are constantly adding to and revising such information. I am going into the matter with the Board with a view to seeing what additional information would be required to give a more complete survey for land settlement purposes. The question whether any further survey is required for the purposes of afforestation does not fall within the province of my Department. The general question of co-ordination between afforestation and the creation of small holdings is at present under consideration by the Government.
