HC Deb 10 April 1922 vol 153 c43

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of the allegation that the management of the Voluntary Training Centre at Catterick High Camp is unsatisfactory, and that the land, which covers an area of 14 square miles and is highly agricultural, is being utterly wasted; whether an ex-service schoolmaster has been placed in charge; and whether he will have inquiry made into this matter?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Lieut.-Colonel Sir R. Sanders)

I have been asked to answer this question. I am not aware of any of the matters alleged. The area covered by the Vocational Training Centre is 500 acres only, not 14 square miles, and the officer in charge of the Agricultural Section is a graduate of an agricultural college, with three years' experience of farming and two years' experience of land valuing and surveying.
