HC Deb 03 June 1907 vol 175 cc263-4

To ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether the Board of Agriculture has any records of agricultural land sales; and, if so, whether he will state the acreage sold publicly and privately during the last five years.

(Answered by Sir Edward Strachey.) We have no official information on this subject. The hon. Member might, however, find it useful to refer to the Land and House Property Year Book, which is published annually by the Estates Gazette, and contains particulars of the sales of land by auction in the metropolis and at many of the chief provincial sales.
