asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what has been the net decrease in the area of land maintained by the Forestry Commission since 1980.

about the feasibility study concerning the location of the proposed new Macaulay Institute; and if he will place a copy of the feasibility study in the Library.

Mr. John MacKay

My right hon. and learned Friend will arrange for a copy of the report of the steering group on the amalgamation of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research and the Hill Farming Research Organisation to be placed in the Library when it is available. The document is being prepared as a report for my right hon. and learned Friend. While copies will be made available to interested parties for information, the report will not be a consultation document.
