HC Deb 16 June 1942 vol 380 c1362
14. Mr. Hannah

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is satisfied that, in all cases, the kitchen gardens of houses requisitioned by the military are being used for growing the largest possible supply of vegetables?

Sir J. Grigg

In an answer of nth February, 1941, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy, my predecessor gave an account of the Army Agricultural Scheme, which has particular regard to this matter.

Mr. Hannah

But if instances are given of gardens going to utter waste, will the Government look into them?.

Sir J. Grigg

There is one class of case in which difficulties do arise, and I am not sure that anything can be done about it. It is when requisitioned property is temporarily unoccupied. If there are cases beyond those covered by this class of case, I shall be glad to look into them.
