HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 cc1440-2W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what provision the Government is making to ensure that smallholdings will be available for Highland landless men who desire holdings on their return from the war?

Mr. Colville

I am afraid that it is impossible at the present time to say when funds will be available to meet the cost of new schemes of land settlement, but the matter will be kept in mind for consideration when circumstances allow.
