§ Captain GILMOUR
asked what was the total sum expended on the crofters' houses erected by the Congested Districts Board near Stornoway, recently condemned by the sheriff; and what is the rent now payable for these houses and lands?
§ Mr. URE
Assuming the hon. Member to refer to the crofters' houses at Aignish, I cannot accept his reference to them as having been condemned by the sheriff as accurate. The total cost of erecting the thirty-two houses was £4,735. The rents for the land, payable to the landlord amount to £94 4s. a year, in addition to which annuities to the amount of £142 2s. 8d. are payable to the Congested Districts Board.
