§ 59. Mr. ROYCE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to a notice in the newspapers stating that a limited liability company is to be formed to purchase some 19,000 acres of land; and whether the acquisition of land by limited liability companies is in accordance with the agricultural policy of the Board?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Sir Arthur Boscawen)
The Board's attention has been drawn to the notice referred to, but I have no further information, and in any case I do not see in what way the Board could interfere.
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
It could not interfere in a matter of that sort unless the land was badly cultivated.
