HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 c1340W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of theneed for proper supervision of grazing committees, as defined in Section 24 of the Small Landholders (Scotland) Act, 1911, steps are being taken to remedy defects which experience has disclosed; and whether immediate legislative enactment is proposed to render more effective these committees, which are capable of beneficial development especially throughout the North of Scotland?


The subject referred to is at present engaging the careful consideration of the Land Court, which is making special inquiries. I may refer the hon. Baronet to what is said on this matter on pages 3 and 4 of the Report of the Land Court for 1918, from which it will be seen that the Court contemplate the possibility of new legislation when their inquiries are completed.
