§ 24. Colonel DAY (for Mr. NEIL MAC-LEAN)
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, seeing that portions of the Island of Rum have been recommended by Royal Commissions for small holdings or small sheep farms, he will say whether any action has been taken by the Board of Agriculture to provide such small holdings or sheep farms; and how many are now existing or in process of being opened up?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The Board of Agriculture for Scotland has not received any applications for small holdings on the Island of Ruin, and no action has been taken by them with a view to the constitution of holdings thereon.
