HC Deb 20 June 1938 vol 337 c716W
Mr. Kelly

asked the Minister of Health which local authorities are co-operating in and what sum is being contributed by each for acquiring 61½ acres of land adjoining the Thames between Bourne End and Marlow at a total cost of £6,069; how much is being contributed by public subscription; what party or parties will receive this money; and what is the present rateable value of the land in question?

Mr. Elliot

The local authorities cooperating in the matter are the County Councils of Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, the Town Council of Chepping Wycombe and the Rural District Councils of Cookham and Wycombe. The price to be paid for the land has not yet been finally settled. The vendors are Mr. D. R. Randall and Messrs. Burroughs of Bourne End, and the land, being agricultural, is de-rated.
