Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Breeding Ewes (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: No, Sir. The figures I have quoted relate to the year previously, but I can give the right hon. Gentleman the assurance that my information so far is that the losses in the north have been small.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Scheduled Land (Non-Agricultural Production) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: Planting in Scotland to be undertaken by the Forestry Commission during the next three years is expected to total about 100,000 acres, and it is estimated that the number of sheep displaced will not exceed 8,500. There will be planting in practically all counties, but it is not possible to say with any precision what effect if any there will be on sheep stocks in any particular county.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Scheduled Land (Non-Agricultural Production) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: We take account of all considerations in regard to afforestation and agriculture, and I do not think my hon. and gallant Friend need be alarmed at what has been done here.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Forestry Operations (Cattle and Sheep) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: 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.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Forestry Operations (Cattle and Sheep) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I will do my best to get the information but it does involve considerable investigation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Forestry Operations (Cattle and Sheep) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: That is perfectly true. All cases are examined by the Secretary of State, and the Department of Agriculture looks at the agricultural aspect.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Abnormal Weather (Livestock) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: The detailed information asked for in the first part of the Question is not available but reports so far received do not suggest that the recent snowstorms have caused abnormal losses of livestock. My right hon. Friend is not aware of any prosecutions nor of any justification for the general implication in the Question that any losses which have occurred have been due to neglect on the part...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Scotland: Abnormal Weather (Livestock) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I can put the hon. Gentleman's mind at rest in regard to the losses of which we are aware. A preliminary report on Caithness, Orkney, Shetland, and Sutherland, the counties principally concerned, indicate that very few deaths are attributed directly to the snowstorm. There are always losses of sheep in winter, but from the snowstorm so far very small losses indeed have been reported. In...

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: There is absolutely no compulsion whatever on the old people. This is to be entirely optional.

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: If I may interrupt, these figures are mere estimates. It is impossible to tell what the actual expenditure will be and what the crofting communities will be capable of absorbing in the first few stages, so these should not be taken as absolute figures. We had to put something in the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: It is an estimate.

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: Perhaps I can tell my hon. Friend now that while there are no artificial insemination centres in the crofting areas, the crofters themselves have received particular help with regard to bulls and rams. They get such service at especially low rates and it is a great help to them. I should like to verify the other question put by my hon. Friend, which had to do with the production of capital,...

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: As we have reasonable time, perhaps I might interrupt the hon. Member. The Crofters Commission has, in fact, great powers in regard to reorganisation. It can recommend to the Secretary of State any reorganisation it thinks fit and the Secretary of State has vested in him at present powers to effect land settlement. If the hon. Member reads the Bill more carefully, he will see that the...

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: Mr. Snadden indicated dissent.

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I will deal with that point later.

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: We have had a most useful and, on the whole, constructive debate on a peculiar problem affecting the economic and social life of a people whose historical development and romantic associations always stir the emotions of Scotsmen. I have some connection with the crofting areas, and I say that this is a peculiar problem because it is a problem which is quite apart from any other we have to...

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: It would require the complete acquisition of crofting land in all the crofting counties. [HON. MEMBERS: "No."] It would require taking over all these lands. I do not want to become involved in this matter. I am only making the case that it has not been found necessary to do this. In particular cases where the Secretary of State finds it necessary to acquire the land, full provision is made in...

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: Under the Clause dealing with reorganisation schemes, if the hon. Member will look at it. I will come to that a little later on. The next question is whether the Bill gives sufficient power to the Crofters Commission. That point has been made pretty generally. It has been said that the Commission itself should have power to administer the loans and grants. A great deal has been said about...

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: —in later Clauses of the Bill. There is the control of the letting of crofts, and there are other powers given in regard to absentee tenants, assignation, and reorganisation. Many powers are given to the Commission in other Clauses, as we shall find when we discuss the matter in Committee.

Orders of the Day — Crofters (Scotland) Bill (27 Jan 1955)

Mr William Snadden: The short answer is that marketing is covered in the Bill, although there will be no power to trade. Marketing is one of the questions that will be looked at. The answer to the claim that the Commission itself should administer the funds should be obvious to most of us. The Secretary of State for Scotland has to be responsible to Parliament in order to carry out proper accountability. We...
