§ Mr. Wallace
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make any additional or temporary appointment to the Land Tribunal for Scotland to expedite appeals under section 15(1A) to (1C) of the Local Government (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1963; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John MacKay
From 1 October last year a part-time surveyor member of the Land Tribunal for Scotland became a full-time member for a period of two years. In14W addition two new part-time legal appointments were made also for a period of two years from 1 October 1985. All of these appointments were made primarily to deal with the anticipated work load on valuation appeals. I am riot aware of any need for further appointments to the tribunal.
