HC Deb 24 July 1933 vol 280 c2227

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he can furnish a statement with reference to the 8,269 applications for smallholdings and enlargements remaining to be dealt with by the Department of Agriculture, showing the length of time that they have been outstanding by yearly periods?

The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Sir Godfrey Collins)

I regret that it is impracticable without an examination of each individual application to give the information desired by my hon. Friend, but I should be willing to discuss the matter with him with a view to furnishing any information which is available.
