asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many of the 20 farms in Roxburgh which received notices of inspection in November, 1955, were in fact inspected: and with what result.

Notices of inspection were received by 21 farmers, mentioned in the hon. Member's Question of 17th December, over the period June, 1951, to June, 1957, but none of these notices was received in November, 1955. All these farms were subsequently inspected and in six cases warning notices were issued.

Is the Joint Under-Secretary aware that that Answer differs somewhat from the previous Answer that I had from the Secretary of State when he said that 20 notices were issued at one particular meeting? In view of the Answer, which still remains unsatisfactory, I hope to raise the matter on the Adjournment.
