§ 30. Mr. WILLIAM YOUNG
asked how many appeals have been lodged by land lords to the Court of Session against the decisions of the Land Court in the matter of rent reductions to small landholders and statutory small tenants, and the result in each case?
§ 31. Mr. W. YOUNG
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that statutory small tenants and small landholders applying for rent reductions are financially unable to defend appeals by landlords to the Court of Session on points of law, he is prepared to authorize or advise the authorisation of the payment of expenses of respondents in vexatious and unwarranted appeals?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The question of expense is a matter for the Court of Session to decide. If an appeal were vexatious and unwarranted the Court of Session would, I imagine, award expenses to the successful respondent.
