HC Deb 01 March 1990 vol 168 c293W
Mr. Bill Walker

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for the disposal of his crofting estates to community ownership.

Mr. Rifkind

I am issuing a consultation paper today seeking views on the possibility of transferring my crofting estates to trusts including representatives of crofting interests, or to some other form of community ownership. Copies of the paper have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
