HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 c1490W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he proposes to adopt any change of policy as to small holdings in Scotland, especially for ex-soldiers after the War, in view of the failure of the Smallholders Act in so far as it was intended to create new holdings?


I am considering what measures may be necessary, by amendment of the Act, or otherwise, to meet the situation with regard to small holdings which is likely to be created by the return of soldiers after the War.
