HC Deb 19 February 1920 vol 125 c1068W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the Departments concerned have now agreed upon the price at which the land at Gretna to be acquired by the Scottish Board of Agriculture for small holdings shall be transferred to the Board; and whether the Board is now in a position to make public the details of its Gretna scheme and to consider applications from ex-service men and others?


I regret that I am not yet in a position to announce that agreement has been reached as regards the price of the land referred to. I am, however, in personal communication with the Minister of Munitions on the subject, and I shall inform my hon. and gallant Friend of the result at the earliest possible moment.
