§ Mr. MACLEAN
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that land at present sublet by the Upminster Parish Council for allotments is wanted for the purpose of laying out a golf course and the allotment holders have received notice to leave in September; and whether he will make inquiries with a view to the continuance of the allotments?
My attention has been drawn to the facts to which the hon. Member refers. I am informed that the land in question has been sold to a golf club, who have given notice to terminate the council's tenancy in accordance with the, terms of the agreement under which the land is held. In these circumstances, I have no power to intervene, but I will make inquiries as to the possibility 01 providing alternative accommodation for the dispossessed plot holders.
