HC Deb 01 December 1908 vol 197 cc1259-60

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he has caused inquiry to be made into the proposal of the King's Lynn Town Council to sell the corporation farm of 763 acres at Snettisham; and whether, before reach- ing a decision, he will consider the advisability of the land being retained, especially in view of the demand for agricultural land under the Small Holdings and Allotments Act, 1907.


I have caused inquiry to be made on this subject, and the question whether the land should be retained or sold is now under my consideration. I may say, however, that I am advised that the land is not suited for the purpose of small holdings.
