HC Deb 29 June 1908 vol 191 c368

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether, in any of the schemes forwarded from county councils, any mention whatever is made of the erection of houses or buildings on small holdings.


Yes, in several of them. I may mention, for example, that the Gloucestershire County Council propose to spend £1,000 on the adaptation of land, including the erection of a new cottage and alterations to existing buildings, and that the Radnor County Council propose to spend £250 for a similar purpose.
