18. Major LLOYD GEORGE
asked the Minister of Agriculture the number of small holdings created during the last two years; what was their average acreage; and what was the average cost?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
As the figures for 1933 are not yet available I give particulars for the two preceding years. In 1931, 273 holdings were created by councils in England and Wales under the Small Holdings and Allotments Acts, the average size being 28¾ acres and the average 902 capital cost £l,236. For 1932 the figures were; 241 holdings with an average of 21 acres each, and an average capital cost of £892.
