HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc26-7
29. Brigadier-General BROWN

asked the Minister of Agriculture the acreage of land lost to agriculture since 1925 by being built upon or absorbed by local authorities, local government legislation, and others for schemes of planning, development, and drainage, etc.?


I regret that this information is not available.

Brigadier-General BROWN

Is it not a fact that hundreds of thousands of acres of good agricultural land are being taken away every year from agriculture by these big roads and buildings, and is that in the interests of agriculture?
