HC Deb 14 November 1918 vol 110 c2894W

asked the President of the Hoard of Agriculture what action he proposes to take in reference to the case of George Parry, 68, St. Ann's Road, Tottenham, a full statement of which was forwarded to the Food Production Department on 26th September?


Mr. Parry has made a claim for compensation in respect of 4 acres of land belonging to him of which possession has been taken by the Essex Agricultural Committee. The land has been let by Mr. Parry to a tenant on lease for seven years, and as the lease has not been determined, Mr. Parry could recover the rent from his tenant. He has, however, been told that if the tenant will agree in writing that payment should be made by the Board to Mr. Parry, the Board will deal with the claim at once. So long as Mr. Parry claims rent from his tenant, he cannot also recover the amount from the Board.
