55. Lieut.-Colonel Dower
asked the Minister of Agriculture what is the number of farmers dispossessed by order of the County War Agricultural Executive 897 Committees for the years 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943 and 1944, respectively.
§ Mr. T. Williams
As the reply contains a number of figures, I will, with permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Does my right hon. Friend realise that there has been a number of very doubtful cases of eviction and will he carefully consider the possibility of setting up machinery by which these evicted farmers may have a right of appeal?
|Year||Taking possession of Land (including all cases where tenancies have also been terminated).||Termination of Tenancies(excluding cases where possession has also been taken).|
|No. of cases.||Acreage.||No. of cases.||Acreage.|
§ In only a small proportion of the cases have the farmers affected been compelled to leave their homes and farms.
