53. Major NEWMAN
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the amount of land now being offered for sale; and whether it is proposed to introduce legislation, other than under the Defence of the Realm Act, to prevent such land passing into the hands of undesirable interests, whether alien or cosmopolitan?
§ Sir G. CAVE
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. This question has been 1923 considered, but I am not in a position to make any statement as to legislation at present.
