§ 45. Sir IAN MACPHERSON
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that Glencoe is in danger of being used for the purpose of the worst form of development; and whether, in view of the historic interest and grandeur of this glen, the Government will take steps to preserve it for the nation?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
I do not know what my right hon. Friend has in mind to secure, as we should all wish, the preservation of these historic amenities. I do not think that the Government could acquire the estate for the nation, and apart from such a step the only official machinery, so far as I am aware, would be a scheme under the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act, 1932. This would be a matter in the first in stance for the county council, whose attention is being called to it.
§ Captain P. MACDONALD
Will the right hon. Gentleman find some means of preventing another massacre in Glencoe?
