HC Deb 17 March 1910 vol 15 c521

asked when the decision of the Board of Agriculture will be arrived at with regard to taking Bradway Farm, in the parish of Bishops Cannings, Devizes, for small holdings; whether he is aware that twelve applicants have been waiting since July last for small holdings on this farm; and that the small holdings committee of the Wiltshire County Council is waiting for the decision of the Board of Agriculture to take action in the matter?


We are fully aware of the circumstances of this case. One of the Assistant Commissioners recently inspected this farm, but he has deferred submitting his report pending the receipt of certain information required from the county council's land agent. The Board will arrive at a decision as soon as the information is received, and will communicate it without delay to the county council.
