HC Deb 15 March 1910 vol 15 cc328-9W
Captain CLIVE

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that small holdings have been let by several county councils at rents based on certain periods for the repayment of loans recommended by the Board of Agriculture; that the Local Government Board have now refused to sanction such long periods for repayment, thereby necessitating an increase of rents after the terms had been settled with the tenants; and whether he will endeavour to promote better co-operation between Government Departments so as to prevent such confusion in future?


I understand that the matter to which reference is made is engaging the attention of my colleagues, the Presidents of the two Departments concerned, and I have no doubt that it will be satisfactorily settled at an early date.
