HC Deb 17 August 1916 vol 85 cc2062-3
58. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he will issue as a White Paper the particulars and details of the Duke of Sutherland's gift of land for the use of soldiers and sailors?


I hope to be able to satisfy the very natural desire of my Scottish colleagues for full information upon these proposals at an early date.


asked the Secretary for Scotland, with reference to the estate of 12,000 acres gifted by the Duke of Sutherland of which the annual value of the land and shootings is £475 according to the Valuation Roll for 1914–15, whether he can state how much of that annual value is attributable to the land and how much to the shootings?


I have promised to give full information as to the Borgie estate which has been offered to the Crown by the Duke of Sutherland for the settlement of sailors and soldiers on the land. I do not know whether there is any general interest in having a close investigation into the minutiae of valuations. If there be any general desire to enter into such details, it is possible that this separation of values could be made.
