HC Deb 19 March 1913 vol 50 cc1060-1W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture why it is that five applicants of the Merrow Land Club, who were approved four years ago, are still without land; and, if land cannot be acquired voluntarily, if compulsory powers will be taken to satisfy their demands?


The five men in question applied for land which in the opinion of the Board was unsuitable for small holdings. They were offered suitable land, but refused it.
