HC Deb 24 April 1975 vol 890 c385W
Mrs. Winifred Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has to conduct a complete soil survey of Scotland; and whether any action has yet been taken by his Department in connection with such a survey.

Mr. William Ross

The Soil Survey of Scotland, which is located at the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research, Aberdeen and is financed by my Department, has already surveyed the major part of the low ground in Scotland, together with some hill areas. This work is continuing. The institute publishes maps recording the results of survey work.
