HC Deb 03 March 1959 vol 601 c26W
59. Mr. T. Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the amount of grants from public funds made for drainage or other reclamation works on sporting estates in Scotland in the past 10 years; what was the farm stock carried on these estates before the grants were made; and what was the farm stock carried on the latest available date.

Mr. Maclay

These grants are restricted to works on land used for agricultural purposes. The records kept by my Department in relation to these grants do not give details of stock changes nor of the extent to which such land may also be used for sporting purposes.
