HC Deb 31 July 1907 vol 179 c941
MR. GRETTON (Rutland)

To ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether any sum, and, if so, what amount, was paid to the outgoing tenant of the Crown farm at Burwell for unexhausted improvements or compensation for disturbance.

(Answered by Sir Edward Strachey.) The Crown Farm at Burwell had been in hand for two years before it was let for small holdings, and there was in consequence no outgoing tenant to compensate, The amount of the valuation due from the incoming tenant was £2,205 6s. 7d., and this sum has been apportioned among the sub-tenants of my hon. friend the Member for Newmarket, with the exception of £175 9s. representing the valuation for certain fixtures on which my hon. friend is paying interest.
