§ Mr. M. MacMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any plans have been, or are being, evolved by the Department of Agriculture in Scotland in conjunction with the forestry authorities for intensive planting of suitable hedges for protection of arable land in the Outer 641W Hebrides from the strong winds that damage grain and vegetable crops.
No plans have been under consideration by the Department of Agriculture for the planting of hedges in the Outer Islands. But if the hon. Member has any proposals of the kind which he thinks are feasible or operable, I will be glad to have these examined.
