HC Deb 28 July 1890 vol 347 c1050
MR. LLOYD-GEORGE (Carnarvon, &c.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury the name of the person with whom negotiations are pending for a lease of the Gwylwyr Sett Quarry, Pistyll, Carnarvonshire, when those negotiations commenced, and why they have not been brought to a termination; what are the terms demanded by the Commissioners of Wood and Forests as to dead rent and royalties, and what is the minimum with regard to time and number of men which they insist upon including in the proviso for re-entry; whether the Commissioners have received applications from more than one person or party for a lease; and, if so, in what order of date they received such applications; and when the last lease expired?


I am not able to answer the question, because the negotiations are not complete; and it would be unusual to make a statement until they are complete.
