§ 49. Sir IAN MACPHERSON
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any statement to make with regard to the allocation of public funds for drainage and heather burning, respectively, in Scotland?
§ The SOLICITOR-GENERAL for SCOTLAND (Mr. Jamieson)
The question of the amount of public funds to be allocated to land drainage in the forthcoming Estimates of the Department of Agriculture for Scotland is at present under consideration. With regard to heather burning it is not anticipated that any additional expenditure will be required under the provisions of the Heather Burning (Scotland) Act, 1926.
