HC Deb 29 June 1950 vol 476 cc2450-1
59. Mr. Leather

asked the Minister of Agriculture what was the report of his Land Commissioner on the agricultural land at Claverton, which it is proposed to take over for housing purposes.

Mr. G. Brown

My right hon. Friend has no knowledge of a specific proposal to take over agricultural land at Claverton for housing purposes, and no report has been made by the Land Commissioner on any such proposal.

Mr. Leather

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that if this land is not being taken for housing there is no point in taking it at all? It is a waste of money. Will he re-assure his right hon. Friend the Minister of Health that Claverton comes within the Private Bill?
