§ 22. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Minister of Agriculture how many urban district councils have bought land for allotments under the machinery of the last Allotment Act?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Guinness)
Assuming that the right hon. and gallant Gentleman desires the information to include boroughs as well as urban districts properly so called, the answer is that 82 borough councils and 78 urban district councils purchased 1,954 acres of land for allotments during the years 1925, 1926 and 192V. It is not possible to say what proportion of these purchases was effected before the 7th August, 1925, when the Act referred to came into operation.
