HC Deb 23 July 1914 vol 65 cc644-5

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture when he will issue the promised Report dealing with the administration of the Madryn estate by the Carnarvonshire County Council under the Small Holdings Act; in what form the Report will be issued; and whether he will make special inquiries to elicit whether tenants have been distrained upon for rent who had only been eighteen months on their holdings?

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

It would be contrary to the well-established practice to publish the Report, but I will write fully to the hon. Gentleman on the subject when I have had an opportunity of considering the Report, which has not yet reached me. The latter part of the question refers to a matter for which the Board do not appear to be responsible.
