HC Deb 27 November 1945 vol 416 c1060
24. Mr. Snadden

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the composition of the appeal tribunals to be set up in connection with decisions of W.A.E.C.'s; and how soon they will be forthcoming.

The Joint Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. Thomas Fraser)

My right hon. Friend has decided that provision should be made in Scotland for appeals against recommendations involving the taking possession of agricultural land or the termination of tenancies. The Scottish Land Court have agreed to act in this matter and to make reports in such cases to the Secretary of State.

Mr. Snadden

Does that Mean that Scottish farmers can now appeal to the Scottish Land Court right away?

Mr. Fraser

Yes, Sir; indeed, some cases of dispossession in recent months have been held over in anticipation of this change of procedure.
