HC Deb 24 March 1925 vol 182 cc243-4
71. Brigadier - General CHARTERIS

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been directed to the unsatisfactory situation regarding the regulation of common grazings in Scotland, in that the Land Court under existing statutory provisions is unable to enforce compliance with its regulations; whether he proposes to take action to entrust the Land Court with the duty of prosecution and the power to punish breaches of the regulations or, alternatively, to empower the Land Court to find as to the facts and confine the duty of the procurator fiscal to moving for sentence?

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Sir John Gilmour)

I am considering the question whether any further measures are necessary and practicable for facilitating the enforcement of the Common Grazings Regulations referred to.
