§ Mr. NEIL MACLEAN
asked the Secretary of. State for Scotland the purpose for which Conon Lodge and the lands, parks, and plantations adjoining were purchased?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The subjects referred to formed part of the estate of Kilmuir, which was purchased in 1904 by the Congested Districts Board mainly with the object, I understand, of utilising the farms on the estate, so far as they were suitable for the purpose, for extension of existing holdings and for new holdings.
