§ 44. Sir R. WINFREY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the recent conviction of a tenant of a Crown farm named Sydney Worth for 725 continued offences under the National Health Insurance Act; and whether, seeing that this unmarried man and his father and brother own and occupy several thousands of acres of other agricultural land, he will consider the advisability of the Crown resuming possession of this most suitable farm in order that it may be available for use under the provisions of the Small Holdings Colonies Bill now before Parliament?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Acland)
As I understand that the farm in question is held under a lease which has still several years to run, the question of the resumption of possession by the Commissioners of Woods, and of the suitability of the farm for a small holding colony do not arise.
