|Parish.||Acreage offered.||Rent per acre.|
|Chieveley||84||5/- per acre in excess of what it would cost the council to lease it.|
|Kintbury (with cottage)||17||32/-.|
|Hampstead Marshall||20||39/6 and interest on outlay on fencing.|
|Speen||59||46/- arable. 57/6 pasture.|
|Winterbourne||133||25/- to 26/-.|
§ In some cases the land was refused as being unsuitable; in others because the rent was considered too high.
