HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 cc685-6W
Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he will issue a White Paper giving precise details of the financial and legal arrangements envisaged in connection with the proposed changes in crofting land tenure.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I do not propose to issue a White Paper. I am satisfied that the very extensive soundings of crofting opinion and the views of other interested bodies which have been undertaken by my Department and by the Crofters Commission have stimulated a sufficiently wide-ranging public debate on these proposals.
