HC Deb 04 May 1926 vol 195 c219W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can state the number of land settlement schemes now being administered by county councils in England and Wales; if there are any such schemes still under the direct administration of the Ministry of Agriculture; and, if so, how many?


The number of separate schemes of land settlement now being administered by county councils and the councils of county boroughs in England and Wales, including land acquired before, as well as since, the War, is as follows:

County councils 4,500
Councils of county boroughs 46

Seven schemes are directly administered by my Department, exclusive of two which are being transferred to the respective county councils as from Lady Day last.
