§ MR. SUTHERLAND (Elgin Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he has received further information regarding the conditions on which numbers of fishermen's houses are held; and, if so, what steps he proposes taking to remedy the grievance.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR, Forfarshire)
I am informed that the conditions have materially changed since the date of Sheriff Guthrie Smith's Report and that on most estates feu charters are given to fishermen who apply for them. No complaints of hardship have reached me, but I shall be glad to inquire into any instances of grievance to which the hon. Member may direct my attention.
