HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 c239W
Mr. Mackintosh

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to create more viable units on his small holding estates in the Lowlands.

Mr. Ross

Amalgamation of holdings has been taking place as opportunity offers. To facilitate this I am prepared to give tenants of uneconomical small holdings leases of their houses if they relinquish their land for amalgamation with other units. Where the tenant is elderly I am prepared to lease the house on special terms.
