HC Deb 20 April 1934 vol 288 cc1268-9W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the rent of the four acre holding which he visited a year ago and on which the holder was making an income of £2 10s. a week apart from the produce consumed by his family; how much it cost to buy the land and equip the holding; how long the tenant had been in occupation of the subjects; and whether he was holding under the Landholders or Agricultural Holdings Act tenure?


The rent and annual building loan charges payable in respect of the holding referred to amount to between £16 and £17. On an allocation of initial capital expenditure among the holdings on the scheme, the cost of land and equipment, including buildings, for this holding was £750. The tenant has been in occupation since Martinmas, 1926, under landholders tenure.
