HC Deb 21 April 1939 vol 346 cc668-9W
Sir T. Rosbotham

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, when formulating his long-term policy for agriculture, he will favourably consider the making of grants, either in money or in kind, to suitable applicants to enable approved persons to settle on statutory small holdings?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

For the reasons explained by my predecessor to my hon. Friend, I can hold out no hope of introducing legislation to carry out the object he has in view.
