§ MR. YERBURGH (Chester)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he will undertake that on the Crown Estates, so far as is consistent with the requirements of the farms, the cottages of the labourers shall be held direct from the Crown?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Sir J. T. HIBBERT,) Oldham
(who replied) said: As stated in the Report of 1890 from the Select Committee on the Woods and Forests, the present practice of the Commissioner of Woods, &c., is to let to the farmers such cottages as are necessary for their farms, and any others not so required 1254 would be usually let by the Commissioner direct to labourers or artisans.
§ MR. YERBURGH
gave notice that he would on another occasion address to the right hon. Gentleman a question dealing with assertions made in a certain publication on this subject.
