HC Deb 27 May 1924 vol 174 cc209-10

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, seeing that the Board of Agriculture has purchased Armadale farm for the purpose of enlarging the inadequately small crofts held by the crofters Strathy East and Strathy West, in Sutherlandshire, he can state if the original plan has been departed from and the farm is now to be divided among a section of the applicants; and whether he is prepared to put in operation the purpose for which the Board purchased the farm, and enlarge the holdings of, approximately, 100 crofters in the area?


My hon. Friend will be glad to know that it is not proposed to depart from the plan of carrying out a scheme for the improvement of existing crofts of several townships, including the two mentioned in the question.
