asked the President of the. Board of Education the number of women medical students who have entered for university training for each of the last five years in England, Scotland, and Wales, respectively?

since been valued by an expert stock auctioneer, what was the price of the auctioneer for ewe and lamb?


The value on acclimatisation basis as fixed by the Land Court at Whitsunday, 1927, was equivalent to £5 5s. 4d. per Cheviot ewe and lamb. The value fixed by auctioneer on the basis of sale ring prices at Whitsunday, 1928, was £2 9s. per ewe and lamb.


asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether there are any holdings on the Waternish settlements still unlet by the Board of Agriculture; and whether he proposes to charge the new smallholders the prices of stock fixed by the Land Court or whether he is now prepared to charge the holders the price as fixed by an expert?


There are 15 holdings still unlet. Tenants have been provisionally selected for entry to eight of these at Whitsunday, 1929, and the prices for sheep stock to be charged to them and to successful applicants for the remaining holdings will be as fixed by live stock salesmen at Whitsunday, 1928, or, alternatively, if the holders so desire, at Whitsunday, 1929.
