HC Deb 31 March 1925 vol 182 c1088

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has had repeated applications from smallholders at Halladale, Forsinard, for an allocation of grazings on the sheep farm of Forsinard; and what steps he proposes to take to see that adequate grazings are made available?

Captain ELLIOT

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As stated in a reply given on the 12th June, 1923, to the hon. and gallant Member for Caithness and Sutherland, it is not practicable to meet the desire of the smallholders, since the land which they wish to have for enlargements is at present occupied on lease by six small tenants whose average rental only amounts to about £28.
