§ 34. Sir WALTER de FRECE
asked the Minister of Agriculture the number of allotments taken in the past 12 months for town extension purposes which have not been replaced elsewhere by the local authority taking them; and whether in all these cases where necessary his Department has made representations in favour of such substitution?
The particulars required by my hon. Friend are only available in respect of those cases where my consent to the transaction is required under Section 8 of the Allotments Act, 1925. In 19 such cases allotment land has been taken by local authorities for own extension purposes during the last 12 months, the number of plot holders dispossessed being 255. In every instance alternative accommodation was available.
