HC Deb 22 December 1981 vol 15 c347W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will direct the Crown Estate Commissioners under section 1 of the Crown Estate Act 1961 to have regard to the requirements laid upon public bodies by section 11 of the Countryside Act 1968; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Rifkind

The Countryside Act 1968 does not apply to Scotland. A comparable statutory requirement in respect of Scotland is, however, placed upon the commissioners by section 66 of the Countryside (Scotland) Act 1967. Since the commissioners must comply with that requirement, a direction under section 1 of the 1961 Act would be inappropriate.
