Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wind-blown Timber (Clearance) (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: That is really a separate question. The obvious answer is to get the timber out of the way so as to get at the rabbits.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wind-blown Timber (Clearance) (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: We are doing our best to group the smaller estates together so as to provide units more attractive to the merchants, but I agree that there are still isolated areas—some inaccessible—where we find a satisfactory solution difficult.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Clyde Valley (Flooding) (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: As was indicated in a previous reply on 17th December, 1953, my right hon. Friend considers that the setting up of a catchment board for the Clyde Valley at this stage would be premature. The difficulty in regard to the Clyde area, as elsewhere in Scotland where flooding conditions exist, is the present lack of legislative powers to carry out remedial works, and an investigation of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Clyde Valley (Flooding) (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: It would not be practicable for us to set up a committee to examine the problems of the Clyde alone. There are other areas in Scotland where flooding takes place, and to set up a committee with a remit for the whole of Scotland would raise very great difficulties. I think we should wait.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land Drainage (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: As I indicated to the hon. Member in a reply given on 17th November, 1953, the discussions with the interested bodies have not yet been concluded, and I am therefore unable to make a statement at present.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land Drainage (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: As the hon. Gentleman knows, there is really no lack of activity on the part of the Government. Nothing can be done in the particular area in which he is interested without further legislation. We are now in consultation with the various interests concerned—farmers, landowners and local authorities—but, until we get agreement on the methods to be employed, it is impossible for us to take...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land Drainage (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I cannot give any date.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: The hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes) is the only Scottish Member who has taken part in the debate and, as my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture promised that I would give an answer to any Scottish questions which were raised, perhaps I might deal straight away with the two points discussed by the hon. Member. First he mentioned Clause 13, which deals with the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flooding, Clyde Valley (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: The Spey Valley survey will, I hope, be completed about the middle of next year. While I will bear in mind the hon. Member's suggestion that a similar survey should be carried out on the Clyde, I regret that I cannot make any commitment at this stage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flooding, Clyde Valley (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: Yes, Sir. We certainly will consider it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wind Blown Timber (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: Assistance in the clearing of wind blown timber in Scotland has been provided by Forestry Commission employees to 11 estates. All definite requests for help on a repayment basis have been fully met.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wind Blown Timber (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: I can only say that there have been a number of inquiries for assistance where the Forestry Commission's terms have been quoted which have not been accepted. I cannot give any more information than that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Potato Harvesting (Schoolchildren) (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: Some 2,221 Glasgow children were granted exemption from school to take part in potato-lifting this year; 422 from senior and 1,799 from junior secondary schools. Every effort is being made to see that all other labour available is utilised before schoolchildren are employed and to effect improvements in potato harvesting machinery.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Landrace Pigs (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: No special encouragement has been given to Landrace as against other breeds of pigs, but my right hon. Friend's officers have kept in close touch with breeders who possess Land-race pigs. These breeders have received help and advice from the advisory services. As regards Danish methods of bacon production, my right hon. Friend is satisfied that producers are endeavouring to improve their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Landrace Pigs (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: There have been two importations of Swedish Landrace pigs into Scotland. They have been in the experimental stage until now, but, naturally, we are doing all that we can through our advisory services to help people to use these pigs to the best advantage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Landrace Pigs (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: I remind my hon. and gallant Friend that the importation of Landrace pigs is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Landrace Pigs (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: I am not aware of any obstruction in regard to these pigs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flooding, Garnock Valley (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 10th November, 1953, to Questions about land drainage legislation put by my noble Friend the Member for Inverness (Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton) and my hon. Friend the Member for Lanark (Mr. Patrick Maitland).

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flooding, Garnock Valley (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: I appreciate the hon. Member's interest in this question, but he will realise that the reason there is flooding in this area is that under present legislation we are unable to take action. We are trying to get that legislation and discussions are taking place with the interests concerned. Until those interests have stated their views, we are not in a position to do anything more.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Flooding, Garnock Valley (17 Nov 1953)

Mr William Snadden: I cannot give a date.
