§ The DEPUTY-MINISTER Of MUNITIONS (Mr. Kellaway)
The question raised by my hon. Friend is receiving the careful consideration of His Majesty's Government. Perhaps I may be allowed to add that the oil at Hardstoft has reached a height of about 2,400 ft., and is rising at about the rate of 340ft. a day.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
When does the-Government expect to decide whether this petroleum belongs to the Crown or to the owners of the land?
