Mr William Snadden: What date?

Crofters (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Vacant Crofts.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 14, line 28, at the end, to insert: (7) Where a croft has, in consequence of the making of an order under subsection (1) of section seventeen of this Act or under subsection (5) of section twenty-one thereof, become vacant and has remained unlet for a period of six months beginning with the date on which the croft so became vacant, the Secretary of State shall, if the...

Crofters (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution and General Functions of Crofters Commission.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 2, line 3, at the end, to insert: and in carrying out their functions shall have regard to local circumstances and conditions. In Committee, the Opposition put down an Amendment to this subsection to insert: the requirements of local circumstances and conditions and the general requirements of the crofting counties of any part thereof and subject to. Hon. Gentlemen...

Crofters (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution and General Functions of Crofters Commission.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 2, line 7, at the end, to insert: (4) The Commission shall include members with knowledge of crofting conditions and at least one member who can speak the Gaelic language. There was considerable discussion on this question in Committee. The Opposition put down this Amendment: (4) It shall be the duty of the Secretary of State in appointing the Commission to ensure that...

Crofters (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution and General Functions of Crofters Commission.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: The answer to what has been said can be summed up briefly in this manner. The Secretary of State will do his very best to get a crofter, a man with practical experience, on the Commission. Such a man will not be excluded because he is a crofter. We shall do our very best to find the right type of person, but he will need to be the most suitable person. We want on the Commission the most...

Crofters (Scotland) Bill: Clause 17. — (Absentee Crofters.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 15, line 32, after " shall " to insert: take into consideration all the circumstances of the case, including the extent, if any, to which the croft is being worked and, where the croft is being worked by a member of the crofter's family, the nature of the arrangements under which it is being so worked, and shall. The House will remember that, when we discussed Clause...

Clause 17. — (Absentee Crofters.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: The Commission would, of course, take that into account. That is not the kind of person we are out to prevent. The Commission would take into account the fact that he was more than two miles away, but we only mentioned two miles to give them some sort of yardstick. There would be no fear of what the hon. Member has mentioned arising in the case he mentioned.

Clause 18. — (Aged Crofters.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 18, line 42, at the end, to insert: (4) Where a conveyance in feu has been granted under this section the person to whom it is granted and the wife or husband of that person shall, so long as either of them continues to occupy the subjects conveyed, continue to enjoy any right to cut and take peats for the use of those subjects which they enjoyed when the authorisation...

Clause 18. — (Aged Crofters.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: Speaking offhand, I think that they would revert to the incoming crofter.

Clause 28. — (Provisions as to Cottars.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 33, line 36, to leave out subsection (3). The House will recall that in Standing Committee my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for South Angus (Captain Duncan), who is not in his place today, raised the question of the crofters' grazing rights. He was afraid that, because of the wording of this subsection, which mentions the Land Court, there might be a conflict...

Clause 39. — (Transitional Provisions and Savings.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr William Snadden: It seems to me that the hon. Member has rather an exaggerated idea about this. The Amendment was put in to deal with the very remote contingency of a croft which, because of an action of the Commission, was unlettable. The landlord has, under the Bill, no control over what the Commission may do. All the Amendment says is that if by any action of the Commission the croft is found to be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flood Protection Work (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: A survey of the kind mentioned would not serve any useful purpose at present. A good deal of information is already available on the subject, and we are constantly adding to it. As my hon. Friend knows, the difficulty has been to devise legislative means of dealing with the problem that will be acceptable to the interests concerned. His interesting suggestion will certainly be examined, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flood Protection Work (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I would remind my hon. Friend that we have been endeavouring to get agreement with regard to legislation, and discussions are still going on. We have not yet reached agreement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flood Protection Work (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: My hon. and gallant Friend will realise that a great number of interests have to be consulted on the question of the maintenance of schemes after completion. It is not easy to get everyone to agree, but we are doing our best to get agreement on dealing with the problem.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Forestry Commission (Land Acquisition) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: Joint rural development surveys covering 1½ million acres have been carried out since 1947 by the Forestry Commission and the Department of Agriculture for Scotland. As a result, 50,000 acres have been acquired or provisional arrangements made for acquisition. A further million acres are in course of being surveyed. In addition, over Scotland as a whole, Forestry Commission officers are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Forestry Commission (Land Acquisition) (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: I cannot make any promises, but I think that we at least expect to maintain the acreage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Private Woodlands (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: The area of woodlands in Scotland in private ownership is estimated to be 829,000 acres, which includes 210,000 acres of scrub, much of which is unenclosed and remote. Of the remaining 619,000 acres, 419,000 acres are either being managed in agreement with the Forestry Commission or to its satisfaction. The remainder is being steadily absorbed into the two categories referred to.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Road Scheme, South Uist (1 Feb 1955)

Mr William Snadden: In June, 1954, the County Council of Inverness stated that a road scheme in respect of East Gerinish, South Uist, would be submitted for consideration for grant assistance during the current financial year, but firm proposals have not yet been received.

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

Mr William Snadden: The provisional figure for breeding ewes in Scotland in December, 1954, is 2,552,000, compared with final figures of 2,549,000 in December, 1953, and 2,707,000 in December, 1940—the latter being the earliest figure for breeding ewes available from the December returns.

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

Mr William Snadden: My hon. and gallant Friend will realise that the figures I have given show an increase in the permanent sheep stocks. The fall in the number of sheep is largely due, as my hon. and gallant Friend has said, to the earlier slaughtering of lambs, which was really brought about by the housewife demanding smaller joints.
