§ MR. T. E. ELLIS (Merionethshire)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether an application was made in 1883 for the regulation of Aberdovey Common; whether he can state what obstacles exist to prevent the issue of the regulation; and, whether there is any prospect that these obstacles will soon be removed?
THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam) (who replied)
said: I am informed by the Land Commissioners that an application for the regulation of Aberdovey Common was made in December, 1882. The obstacles that exist to prevent the regulation are that the necessary consents could not be obtained. The Land Commissioners are not aware that there is any prospect of these obstacles being removed. They have no knowledge of the extent of the waste or common mentioned; nor are they 1102 aware of the enclosure of any portion of such waste or common land.
