§ Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, whether he has received the further submission from the Crofters Commission on common grazings and other problems arising from the Commission's proposals for compulsory croft-ownership; and if he will arrange for exhaustive consultations at township and all other levels to ensure that all the proposals and their implications are fully understood by the crofters, and that adequate time is given for their consideration.
§ Mr. Ross
The Commission's proposals on these matters were submitted152W to me on 26th September. As with their main proposals on crofting tenure, I have now invited comments on these further recommendations from a wide range of interested bodies, including the crofters unions. I will naturally also consider written evidence from any other bodies or persons who have not been directly invited to let me have their views and who may wish to do so.
