HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c266W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware of the difficulty that has arisen in connection with the hill-grazing for the sheep of the tenants at Rhelonie and Achnagart, Ross-shire; and what steps he proposes to take to restore the arrangement amicably arrived at in 1923?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Board of Agriculture for Scotland are in communication with the agents for the trustees of the late landlord regarding the claims of these crofters. The crofters have also been advised that in so far as they claim statutory rights to grazings in Rhelonie Hill, they should apply to the Scottish Land Court to have these rights defined.
