HC Deb 22 July 1929 vol 230 cc943-4W
Colonel BURTON

asked the Minister of Health whether he has any information

quarter since the beginning of 1924, the average number of persons in receipt of outdoor relief in England and Wales distinguishing (1) persons ordinarily engaged in some regular occupation and their dependants, and (2) the ordinary outdoor poor.

as to the number of racecourses assessed as agricultural land?


I have no information as to any such cases. The definition of "agricultural land" in the Rating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act, 1928, expressly excludes "land used as a racecourse."
