§ Sir ALFRED GELDER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture how many applications for small holdings had been received by the Lindsey County Council from persons residing in the Brigg Division; and how many of such applications had been granted?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Sir Edward Strachey)
Seventy-two applications have been received, of which sixty-four have been approved, four refused and one withdrawn. The other three have been satisfied by private agreement. I may add that the Board were not satisfied 1223 with the position and they made representations to the County Council on the subject, with the result that the County Council have appointed an agent, and the Board hope the land required to satisfy the approved demand will be acquired without further delay.
