HC Deb 03 July 1935 vol 303 cc1860-1
48. Mr. MILNE

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that at Crosshill and elsewhere in Fife, where the Department of Agriculture for Scotland have provided plots for cultivation by unemployed persons, the plot-holders are suffering serious inconvenience and hardship by reason of the lack of communal huts where they could store their tools and obtain shelter in bad weather; and whether he will take steps to secure that communal huts at these places are provided by the Department?


The sums available for plotholders' schemes would not permit of the general provision of huts in addition to the other expenses of the schemes. Plotholders elsewhere have provided tool stores without assistance, or in some cases with assistance received from voluntary sources. If my hon. Friend will send me details of any particular case he has in mind I will have the matter inquired into.
