§ 72. Mr. Thorne
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many Skye crofters are affected by the decision of the court that their houses should share the benefits of agricultural derating?
§ Mr. Elliot
I am informed that in 1,632 cases in Skye the county valuation appeal committee have given decisions upholding appeals by crofters against the entry of their dwelling-houses in the valuation roll. The present position with regard to these decisions is as stated in my reply of 28th October last to a question by the hon. Member for the Western Isles (Mr. M. MacMillan) of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
