§ 92. Dr. CHAPPLE
asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health how many smallholders have been settled on the land in Scotland, at what cost per person, and at what cost per acre, under the Small Holders (Scotland) Act, 1911?
§ Captain ELLIOT
Under the Small Landowners (Scotland) Act, 1911, as originally enacted and as amended, 2,281 holders have been settled. The average cost per holder is approximately £305, of which £153 represents loans to the holder. The average cost per acre is approximately £3 2s. 6d.
§ Mr. R. MURRAY
Would it not be better to spend money in this way than in sending these people abroad?
