§ Mr. N. Maclean
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the price originally paid for the Balmacaan estate at its sale at Whitsunday, 1942; the prices paid at its subsequent sales in August, September and November, 1942; how much of the estate was sold in January, 1943, and the price paid for this; and whether he can give any reason for the frequent sale of this estate within a period of seven months?
The particulars asked for in the first three parts of the Question were included in the answer I gave to my hon. Friend last Tuesday. I have no basis for any theory as to the reasons for the frequent transfers of ownership of this property.
