§ 9. Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked what, in the opinion of the legal advisers of the Board of Agriculture and according 1591 to their past practice, is the interpretation put upon the expression "field-garden," as used in the Inclosure Acts; whether it is synonymous with allotments; and, if not, what is the distinction between them?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
Field-gardens provided under the Inclosure Acts are "allotments" in the ordinary sense, but are not so called in these Acts, in which the word "allotment" is used in the wider sense to signify any land allotted under the award.
