HC Deb 10 November 1964 vol 701 cc56-7W
46. Mr. Bence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, what consideration he is giving to the problem of excessive feus being paid by owner-occupiers in Scotland.

Mr. Ross

I am aware that in certain localities feu duties for new owner-occupied houses have risen considerably; my impression is that this rise is associated with the general increase in the cost of land in Scotland, and as the hon. Member knows it is the intention of the Government to introduce legislation to deal with that wider problem.
