HC Deb 24 July 1929 vol 230 cc1338-9W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, with regard to the proposal to evict certain allotment holders and smallholders from their holdings in Ewshott, Hampshire, on 27th September, he will state the number of persons on whom notices have been served; the reasons for the proposed eviction; and whether he proposes to provide alternative holdings for the evicted tenants?


It is proposed to terminate two tenancies of certain War Department land at Ewshott which is required for military training. No formal notice has as yet been given, but it is understood that the Crookham Parish Council, which is one of the tenants, has issued anticipatory warning notices to its sub-tenants. The War Department has no information as to the number of such sub-tenants, nor has it received any request for alternative sites, but any such request would receive careful consideration.
