HC Deb 21 March 1910 vol 15 c905W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will give the names of the persons in Scotland who were allowed to grow tobacco in the season of 1909, with their residences; the lands where tobacco was grown; and the quantity of tobacco raised?


Only one person in Scotland has applied to be allowed to grow tobacco for experimental purposes in the season of 1909. His name is Mr. W. M. Neilson, of Barcaple, Kirkcudbrightshire, to whom authority was given to cultivate one acre at Barcaple. The actual quantity of tobacco raised cannot be stated, the curing not yet being completed; but the amount will probably be about 400lbs.
