HC Deb 13 May 1909 vol 4 c2154W

asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the fact that under the Small Holdings Act the local authorities are charging in the rent both interest and redemption for land, houses, drainage, fencing, and roads, the Government will introduce an amendment to the Act so as to allow 80 years for the repayment of loans for land and buildings in connection with small holdings and allotments, as has been allowed in the Irish Housing Act and as is proposed in the Town Planning Bill?


The matter having been before Parliament so recently, the Government do not propose to bring forward fresh legislation at the present time.
