§ MR. LLOYD-GEORGE (Carnarvon, &c.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Commissioners of Woods and Forests have granted a lease of the Gwylwys Sett Stone Quarry, in the parish of Pistyll, Carnarvonshire; if so, to whom, for what term, and subject to what dead rent and royalties; whether such a lease contains any proviso for re-entry in the event of the quarry not being worked for a certain time; and if there be such a provision, whether it has been enforced?
§ A LORD OF THE TREASURY (Sir H. MAXWELL,) Wigton
I am informed that negotiations are in progress for the grant of a lease of the quarry referred to, but no lease has been granted. The lease, if granted, will contain a provision for re-entry in the event of the quarry not being worked.
