HC Deb 02 November 1943 vol 393 c535W
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?

Mr. Johnston

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.
