HC Deb 08 March 1927 vol 203 cc1063-4W

asked the Minister of Agriculture (1) what is the present unsatisfied demand for allotments in England and Wales;

(2) how many authorities have acquired land under the provisions of the Allotments Act, 1926; how much land has been acquired; how many allotments have been created; and what was the price paid for the land?


I will answer this and the next question together. In formation with regard to the land acquired and number of allotments provided, as well as the outstanding demand for allotments, appears in the Ministry's Report for the year 1925 on the Proceedings under the Allotments Acts, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. The returns for the year 1926 are being tabulated at the present time, but the results will not be available for another six weeks.
