HC Deb 07 October 1941 vol 374 c824
26. Mr. McKinlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the financial result of the planting and disposal of crops by the Milngavie Town Council on lands belonging to the burgh?

The Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. T. Johnston)

I am informed that in the year ending 15th May last the total expenditure of the town council on the cultivation of crops on land belonging to the burgh amounted to £1,419 and receipts from the sale of crops totalled £1,642. This expenditure, however, in-cluded the cost of seeds and ploughing for this year's crop, and if allowance is made for these factors, it is estimated by the council that the profit on last year's crop would amount to approximately £450.
