asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent the stock of cattle and sheep fell on the farms at Gruids in Sutherland, Inverleal, Rattagan, Strathconon, and Comrie in Ross-shire, Glenvarigill, Isle of Skye, and Aberchalder, South Laggan, and Ballachraggan in Inverness-shire, respectively, between December, 1929, and December, 1954, following the operations of the Forestry Commission.
The information asked for involves considerable investigation which it has not been possible to complete in the time available. I shall, however, write to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
Will my hon. Friend expedite his answer because the information is required by Scottish M.P.s of all parties who are meeting a delegation of Highland farmers on 8th February?
