HC Deb 26 February 1924 vol 170 c285W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the recommendations of the Fife education authority and of the large agricultural population in the county, the Scottish Board of Agriculture is prepared to sanction and finance a scheme for the provision of an agricultural institute and experimental farm for the County of Fife?


I understand that a proposal by the Fife education authority for the acquisition of an experimental farm has been discussed with the Scottish Board of Agriculture. At present I am not in a position to say whether funds can be made available for the purpose, but the matter is having my consideration.
