asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will, in the neat future, authorise the West of Scotland Agricultural College to carry out an economic survey of the islands of Argyll, similar to that which was carried out by the East of Scotland Agricultural College and the North-East of Scotland Agricultural College, with a view to ascertaining the financial and economic position of the various types of farms on the islands.

:The West of Scotland College has for many years past conducted throughout the whole of its area, which includes Argyll, an investigation into the economic and financial position of farms of various types. The location of the farms selected for this investigation is at the discretion of the College. I have not been asked by the West of Scotland Agricultural College to authorise any other economic survey.
