§ 35. Mr. MORGAN JONES
asked the Minister for Agriculture whether he has received an application from the Porthcawl Rural District Council for an exchange of the charity land of the labouring poor; whether he has received evidence that the proposed exchange would be a violation of the trust; whether he is aware that the Charity Commissioners have already refused the application; and what action he proposes to take?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Edward Wood)
I have received an application for an exchange of the land to which the hon. Member refers, and also representations to the effect that the exchange would be a violation of the trust. I am aware that the Charity Commissioners have already refused the application, and, before arriving at any decision, I propose to await the result of certain inquiries that I am making in the matter.
