HC Deb 25 March 1870 vol 200 cc637-8

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether it is the intention of the Commissioners of Woods, Forests, and Land Revenues to sell to Lord Spencer the rights which the Crown enjoys over the commons within the manor of Wimbledon, in respect of an enfranchised copyhold farm of 40 acres, which rights are at present the chief obstacle to the proposed conversion of 140 acres of Wimbledon Common into a sewage farm?


replied, that Lord Spencer had made no application to the Commissioners of Woods in reference to these rights, and therefore they had had no occasion to consider the subject.
