HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc958-9W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if he is aware that the agent for the Crown lands in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, refuses to rent waste land to residents in the neighbourhood who are owners of cattle, and who may require it for the protection of their animals; if this waste land is unremunerative to the Crown; and by letting it out to residents who may require it, would it be meeting the needs of the residents in the district and bring in revenue to the Crown?


The Commissioners of Woods are, under the Acts governing Dean Forest, prohibited from letting any part of the waste which is subject to rights of common.
