HC Deb 31 July 1930 vol 242 c717W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he proposes to introduce legislation to give effect to the report of the Deer Forest Commission of 1921?


Following a meeting in February last with representatives of Scottish agricultural societies and of the Scottish Land and Property Federation, an advisory committee was appointed with whom the Department of Agriculture should consult with a view to reaching a measure of common agreement as to the heads of prospective legislation. The suggestions of the individual members of the committee have now been received and are being examined. I am not in a position at present, however, to indicate when it may be possible to introduce a Bill.
