HC Deb 26 June 1925 vol 185 c1959

I beg to move, to leave out the Clause.

This is consequential upon the New Clause I moved this morning in replacement of Clause 9. I think it is the fairest compromise I can suggest, in view of the failure to reach agreement. It affords the best compensation we can to allotment holders.


I think, on the whole, we might be prepared to accept this compromise. I am moved towards accepting it by the fact that it will, to a certain extent, stabilise the idea that 3d. per pole is a legitimate rate to ask allotment holders. Threepence a pole is the equivalent of £2 an acre. That is a good enough rent for any land. It is with this in view that I think it would be wise to accept the Amendment. I hope the development of allotments under this Clause will be of considerable benefit to the community.

Amendment agreed to.
