HC Deb 16 March 1876 vol 228 c65

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether the Government intend to allow the Agricultural Holdings Act to come into operation on the Greenwich Hospital estates situated in the county of Northumberland?


in reply, said, it was intended that the Act should come into operation with regard to that portion of the estates which was not under lease. They were, however, a small part. Nearly the whole of the estates were under leases of 14 and 21 years, and to such contract of tenancy the Act did not apply.
