The landowners of Scotland do not have a very good track record for acting on behalf of the working class. One has only to read of the Clearances to understand how much the real people of Scotland have been close to the heart of the owners. Recent land sales have been to the detriment of people trying to make a living on the land, and Knoydart is a prime example.
Does Mr Dingwall-Fordyce expect us to believe that the Landowners' Federation can police land sales properly? May I suggest that the people of Scotland should have a say in whether some German artist or whoever is a proper person to administer land which belongs to the people of Scotland. I wish the new Parliament well.
