§ 109. Sir M. MacDonald
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of vacant holdings on State-owned lands in the Skye district of the county of Inverness; how many of these are not equipped with dwelling-houses; and the total sum per annum spent to maintain these vacant holdings and such houses as exist.
§ Mr. Westwood
The number of un-tenanted holdings on State owned lands in the Skye district of the County of Inverness is 51, of which 28 are not 263W equipped with dwelling houses. The expenditure being incurred at present on these holdings is in connection with their use, along with other untenanted properties in the Highlands, for the grazing of Highland cattle for the Department of Agriculture. I regret that I have no separate details of expenditure for Skye holdings alone.
