HC Deb 26 June 1940 vol 362 c435
18. Mr. Lunn

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether any action has been taken to bring into useful production of food the McCreagh estate in Hampshire?

Mr. T. Williams

Effective steps have been taken to utilise this estate in the best national interests.

Mr. Lunn

As I understand it, this is an estate of many thousands of acres, and will the Minister say whether it is now being used for food production?

Mr. Williams

I can assure by hon. Friend that although this estate has been more or less derelict for 20 years, the whole of its 3,000 acres are now being effectively used.
