HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 c2489W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of the feeling of allotment holders on the subject of the power of local authorities to dispose of land purchased for allotments, especially in cases where allotment holders themselves have contributed to the capital charge for the land; that the recent national congress of allotment holders at Sunderland passed a resolution calling for amendment of the law to provide for a public inquiry and sanction by a Government Department before such land can be surrendered from use as allotments; and what action he proposes to take?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which the Parliamentary Secretary gave him on the 27th May last. A further meeting of the Allotments Advisory Committee will be arranged for the consideration of the matter as soon as a decision has been reached as to an agreed recommendation on the part of the representatives on that committee of the local authorities and the allotment holders.
