asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will provide a detailed breakdown of expenditure within his responsibility for the years 1978–79 to 1987–88, inclusive, in a form similar to the table on page 151 of "Public Expenditure to 1989–90: Scottish Commentary", expressing this information at estimated 1987–88 prices.

Report,column 147, how many forestry grant scheme applications made up the 49,895 hectares of land referred to; and what proportion of these contained land in LCA class 4.
A total of 315 forestry grant scheme applications was involved. I regret that identification of the quality of land involved could be done only at disproportionate cost.
