Orders of the Day — Agriculture, Scotland (Pasture Acreage) (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I am sorry I meant to give that figure, but I forgot. To date, 91 directions have been served under the Order since its inception, or a little over one farmer in 100. That is not a very high proportion, and it says a good deal for our efficiency in Scotland. Those 91 directions involved a total of 1,680 acres brought back into cultivation out of grass, and is a very small figure when the full...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Contributions in Respect of Fertilisers in Accordance with Schemes.) (27 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I think I can put the minds of Northern Ireland Members at rest to the extent of saying that it is intended that for the first period we shall probably have a separate scheme for Northern Ireland. I understand that Northern Ireland wants it, and I think I can say that the first scheme will be a separate one.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Contributions in Respect of Fertilisers in Accordance with Schemes.) (27 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: If Northern Ireland desire it, then it is our intention to give them a separate scheme. I hope that that is clear. However, if these Amendments were carried—and I take it we are including the proposed Amendment, Clause 6, page 4, in line 3, to leave out paragraph (c)—they would remove the discretion whereby a separate scheme may be made for each of the three countries, or a joint scheme...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Contributions in Respect of Fertilisers in Accordance with Schemes.) (27 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I can assure the hon. Member that is not the case. There has been no demand from any Scottish argricultural organisation for separation for Scotland. There has been no objection from the National Farmers' Union of Scotland on this scheme. They have in mind that the agricultural lime scheme and the basic slag scheme have worked smoothly, in the same way as is being used under this Bill. There...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Contributions in Respect of Fertilisers in Accordance with Schemes.) (27 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I should have thought that the hon. Gentleman would have realised, having been a Minister himself in the Scottish Office, that we would not come forward with a Bill of this nature, without having had full consultations with the National Farmers Union. We have had those consultations and there was no demand at all, as I have said, for any separate scheme for our country. The reason why we are...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Contributions in Respect of Fertilisers in Accordance with Schemes.) (27 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The farmers' application will be a direct application of his own, which will go through the branch in Scotland, already existing, of the Agricultural Lime Department. It is a very small branch, but it is located in Scotland and always has been and is dealing with the lime subsidy now in operation. We want to retain the same machinery in order to save costs. I cannot make it any clearer than...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill: Clause 4. — (Supplementary Provisions as to Schemes.) (27 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I think I can give the hon. Gentleman the assurance he asks for. We will reconsider the minimum of 10 cwt. mentioned during the Second Reading debate. At that time it was our intention, but we recognise the Scottish aspect raised by the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond). If we accept the amendment on the Order Paper it would have the effect of removing any minimum; and we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Unclassified Roads (Grants) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: District councils are concerned only with existing roads not on the county list of highways. Grants for improvement work on such roads can be given in appropriate cases to district councils in the Highlands and Islands.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Unclassified Roads (Grants) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: All schemes where improvements are proposed are examined by the Department of Agriculture for Scotland. I can only say that we give sympathetic attention to these schemes and that we are in a position to give grants for improvement work in the Highlands and Islands.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land Drainage, Campbeltown Area (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend is fully aware of the need to carry out a scheme of drainage works in the Machrihanish area near Campbeltown. This is one of a number of major drainage problems which can only be solved by new legislation. In our consideration of legislative proposals we will carefully examine the method suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend to secure contributions by proprietors and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Land, Loch Mullardoch (Access) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The question of access is being considered. I understand that the Hydro-Electric Board are discussing the matter with the Highlands Agricultural Executive Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Land, Loch Mullardoch (Access) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I think we had better await the result of inquiries by the agricultural committee concerned.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Piers and Jetties (Applications) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend has before him at present two applications from the county council of Inverness for piers or jetties in the Outer Hebrides and two from the county council of Ross and Cromarty.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hill Lands Commission (Report) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I expect that the Commission will periodically report on the progress made in their task of stimulating the development of cattle rearing in the North of Scotland area; but they have not been asked to make a formal report or recommendations at any particular time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hill Lands Commission (Report) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The answer to both questions is "Yes."

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Rural Housing (Grants) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Yes, Sir: this will not be overlooked.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Rural Housing (Grants) (25 Mar 1952)

Mr William Snadden: All these matters are taken into consideration.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Deer (29 Apr 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I regret that I am unable to give the estimates requested in the first part of the Question. As to the second part the Scottish Committee of the Nature Conservancy have suggested that the optimum carry of deer in Scotland would be 60,000, exclusive of calves. They estimate that with efficient management this total would yield annually 800 tons of meat.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Deer (29 Apr 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Of course, there is a great deal of difference of opinion on this matter, but I think that when we have the Bill from another place, we shall have ample opportunity to discuss the questions raised by the hon. and learned Gentleman.
