§ Mr. Leonard
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the decrease in the number of allotments available for the unemployed and dwellers in urban areas; to what extent his Department has urged local authorities to provide for such recreation; and whether the Government are prepared to assist financially in the prosecution of a policy calculated to foster this recreation?
§ Mr. Colville
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given yesterday to a question by the hon. and learned Member for Greenock (Mr. R. Gibson) on the subject of a letter which I have received from the Joint Committee of the Scottish National Union of Allotment Holders and the Society of Friends.
