§ Mr. Maclennan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will introduce a concessionary rate of charges for agricultural advisory services sought by registered crofters; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John MacKay
The Scottish agricultural colleges are currently giving consideration to the full range of agricultural advisory services for which charges are to be made, and the prices at which these services will be offered, taking account of the wide variety of circumstances within the Scottish agricultural community. No final decisions have yet been made.
