HC Deb 12 May 1938 vol 335 c1737W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the increasing tendency to use allotment land for housing, he can take steps to improve the tenure of allotments and to provide the Allotments Association with adequate funds at low interest to enable them to solve this problem which, under present circumstances, is preventing the development of the allotment movement?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Henley (Sir G. Fox) on 5th May.

Commander Bower

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many allotment holders have been displaced from the site in Portsmouth on which the Admiralty intend to build a signal school?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The number of allotment holders displaced from the North End Allotments at Portsmouth acquired by the Admiralty for a signal school, was 639.
