HC Deb 01 May 1952 vol 499 c124W
Mr. John MacLeod

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what part the proprietors of the three townships in Ross and Cromarty, for which schemes have been formally approved under the Hill Farming Act, are playing in these schemes.

Mr. J. Stuart

In the townships referred to the proprietors are not concerned in the improvement schemes. The crofters are themselves responsible for the improvements, as is normal practice under the system of land tenure relating to crofts.
