HC Deb 15 November 1938 vol 341 cc680-1
55. Sir R. W. Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the rent per acre of arable land in Scotland has risen or fallen in the last three years; and what is the position in the case of arable land belonging to the Department of Agriculture?

Mr. Colville

Exact information is not available, but I am advised that during the last three years there has been no significant change in the rentals of arable holdings, including those belonging to the Department of Agriculture for Scotland.
