§ Mr. BRODIE
asked whether in some cases county councils are employing agents to buy or hire land for small holdings who are also agents for the landowners whose land is or may be required; and whether he will take steps to secure the discontinuance of this arrangement?
§ Sir E. STRACHEY
No case of the kind has been brought to the knowledge of the Board. They have advised county councils to appoint salaried agents giving their whole time to the work.
