§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from the Scottish Association of Registered House-Builders regarding the disposal of land by the Land Commission; and if he will require the Commission to operate procedures applicable to circumstances in Scotland.
§ Mr. Ross
I have seen the views expressed by the Association in a letter which it addressed on 9th January to hon. Members for Scottish Constituencies. I am satisfied that the procedures which the Land Commission will operate take full account of Scottish circumstances, and at my request the Commission cleared up any misunderstandings about them at a meeting with the Association on 22nd January.
