HC Deb 02 August 1926 vol 198 c2612
23. Mr. RILEY

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will give figures showing the amount of land returned as agricultural land in England and Wales that was suitable for agricultural use in the years 1870, 1880, 1890, 1900, 1914, and 1924, together with the population of England and Wales for those years and the number of acres per 1,000 of the population?


I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT a statistical statement giving the information desired by the hon. Member.

Following is the statement:

Captain BENN

Was this matter mentioned at all when the negotiations for remitting part of the duties was being considered?


That question should be put to the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
