§ 21. Mr. ORDE-POWLETT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will earmark a sum from the money to be provided in his Budget proposals for the purpose of enabling county councils to drain and improve land acquired by them for small holdings, and thus enabling them to let the land to small holders at a more economic rent than is at present possible without throwing the cost on the ratepayers?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
Under Section 8 (1) of the Small Holdings and Allotment Act, 1908, county councils have power to drain and improve land acquired by them for small holdings.
