HC Deb 18 December 1912 vol 45 cc1503-4
71. Captain CLIVE

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if he will send to the Wigmore Parish Council and the Herefordshire Small Holdings Committee the Report of the inspector from the Board of Agriculture who visited that village in 1911 to inquire as to the provision of small holdings; and, if not, will he say whether the Report suggested that there was any failure to meet, as far as possible, the demand for small holdings in that parish?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Runciman)

The Report was written for the guidance and information of the Board themselves, and it would be contrary to well-established practice for copies to be sent to the bodies named in the first part of the question. I may state, however, that the Board are satisfied that there has been no failure on the part of the county council to meet the demand for small holdings in Wigmore parish as far as possible.
