HC Deb 09 February 1893 vol 8 c879
MR. KEAY (Elgin and Nairn)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Government will grant a Return from the registers kept under Section 15 of "The Allotments Act, 1887," showing the amount of land acquired for the purpose of allotments, the number and area of allotments made, and the rent or average rent per acre at which they have been let?


A Return was presented to the House in July last giving particulars as to the Rural Sanitary Authorities and County Councils who, under the Allotments Acts, had provided land for allotments by purchase or hiring, the parishes in which the lands were situated, the acreage of the lands, and the number of tenants to whom allotments had been let. As this Return was so recently obtained, I think that it will be desirable that some period should elapse before a further Return is presented.
