asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the severe losses of sheep in Shetland; and if he will take measures to help the crofters concerned.

I greatly regret that the recent snowstorm in Shetland should have caused losses to sheep stocks. I have been informed about the matter and am advised that the facilities afforded under the Livestock Replacement Scheme will be enough to help the crofters to replace stock lost.
