HC Deb 23 March 1908 vol 186 c1085

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he will state whether any inquiry has been made into the increased value of Hollesley Bay Colony as a result of the labour expended upon it by the unemployed; and, if not, whether he would cause a valuation to be made at the present time, so that it will be possible to institute a comparison with the cost at the outset of the undertaking.


I understand that valuations were made at Michaelmas, 1906 and 1907, respectively, of the improvements which had been effected at the Farm Colony. I am giving some particulars of the latter valuation in a written answer to a Question by my hon. friend the Member for the Devizes Division, which appears in to-day's Notice Paper.
