HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 c1532
51. Commander Locker-Lampson

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many allotments have been abolished by the Birmingham authorities in the last ten years; and how many new allotments have been started since the war began?

Mr. Hudson

I have no information that enables me to answer the first part of the Question. As regards the second part, 9,000 war-time allotments have been provided in Birmingham since the outbreak of war, including more than 6,000 by the Corporation direct.

Commander Locker-Lampson

Cannot the Minister obtain the statistics asked for in the first part of the Question?

Mr. Hudson

I doubt it.
