HC Deb 06 April 1948 vol 449 c12
25. Lieut.-Commander Clark Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is yet in a position to make a statement in regard to increasing the security of tenure of allotment holders.

The Joint Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. J. J. Robertson)

Security of tenure for allotment holders is one of the matters that are being reviewed in connection with comprehensive proposals submitted by the Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society for amending the Allotments Acts. I am not in a position to make a statement on the matter.

Lieut.-Commander Hutchison

Can the Under-Secretary indicate when he is likely to be able to make a statement, as I asked a question on this subject in January, and nothing seems to have happened?

Mr. Robertson

I am afraid I have nothing to add to what I have said.

Mr. Berry

Is the Under-Secretary aware that, as in Scotland so in England, this has been a burning matter for the last quarter of a century?
