HC Deb 07 November 1950 vol 480 c49W
116. Sir D. Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if the systematic survey to determine the best use of land in each area in the Highlands, referred to in the programme of Highland development contained in Command Paper No. 7976, has commenced; and if county councils are responsible for the surveys in their own counties.

Mr. McNeil

In addition to the survey of the Strathoykell area, referred to in the White Paper, surveys have been carried out in part of Wester Ross and in the island of Jura. A survey is now being made of part of the island of Mull. The survey work is being done by officers of the Department of Agriculture and the Forestry Commission and not by the County Councils.
