§ 30. Major Sir ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that there is a fence at Totegan, near Strathy, in the county of Sutherland, now in need of repair; that a fence is urgently required along the cliff further to the west; that over 100 people are concerned in the application for material to fence the cliffs, and that this fence would prevent constant loss of stock and enhance the prospects of success of the Board's recent scheme at Armadale; and whether the Board will grant the material for the construction of this fence?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I am aware of the request made to the Board of Agriculture to repair and provide the fences referred to by the hon. and gallant Member. The Board have given it their careful consideration, but have come to the conclusion that they would not be justified in granting the application.
§ Sir A. SINCLAIR
Is the hon. Baronet not aware that this property belongs to the Board of Agriculture? I am sure the Board of Agriculture will fulfil its obligations.
